Food for Thought-Buck Dexter and the Adventure of the No Parking Sign

IMG_3415

Buck Dexter strode into the Open Clam Saloon; the roughest whiskey swilling joint south of Cape Hatteras. Buck wasn’t in the bar for more than a minute when one mean hombre approached him and asked, “is your horse parked by my no parking sign?”  Buck said…

I have no car,
And my horse caught on fire,
My dog is blue like Babar,
I bought her for four Bosnian dinars,
She’s far too large,
To drive a car.
Don’t worry about me,
I’m not parking by your tree.

–Buck Dexter

      • It’s a good idea Richard, the combination of prose and poetry. The narrative does set up the character and scene. The poetry adds the imagery and a smart use of language. You have packed a lot into relatively few words.

      • Thanks Ronald. I often “set up” a poem when I read it. I’ve been thinking about poems as part of a larger narrative and including that brief set up from some unwritten narrative as snap shot of what I eventually post. I appreciate your feedback and support.
