Call Me A Cab

Written for:  Poetic Asides November 2016 Chapbook Challenge – Day 9
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Call Me (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write the poem. Possible titles include: “Call Me Al,” “Call Me Crazy,” “Call Me Batman,” “Call Me at 3 O’clock in the Morning,” etc.

Call me a cab, she demanded,
I know you’ve been less than candid.
Bet you did not use protection.
Hope she was worth the attention.

Do not plague me with any more lies,
I was blind but now I have wised
up. Your things are packed for collection.
Hope she was worth the attention.

In future I’ll be less trusting
First lesson is readjusting
to more than your one dimension.
Hope she was worth the attention.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
