The Cat Out Of The Bag
by Joanna M. Weston

as luck would have it, in the calm
before the storm I lucked
into a communist conspiracy
of blushing brides wearing

their best bib and tucker
that knocked my socks over
the moon so I kicked up
my heels as a mover and shaker

a poor excuse for a pillar
of society on a trip
down memory lane where the rock
and the hard place squash

the wolf at the door into
a plain old wheeler dealer
who got out on the wrong side
of the bed and got stuck in the mud
