On Display

He’s so ostentatious. He turns up his nose
at other folks’ houses, vehicles and clothes.
He only wears Lagerfeld, Lauren or Kors.
His decor is elegant, but he hates yours!

Your neighborhood barbecue starting at twilight
will never be his calendar’s highlight.
Picnics to him are truly the pits.
He dines at Spagos. Slums it at the Ritz.

In his microcosm, he reigns as the king
of all refinement. Each exquisite thing
that resides in his house is an objet d’art,
but, concerning your taste? Darling, don’t start.

When it comes to decor you have no idea.
He buys antiques in Paris. You shop at IKEA.
Of his sense of design, you know not one iota.
Do you need further proof? You drive a Toyota!


The prompt words today are microcosm, barbecue, twilight, ostentatious and nose. Photo by Kevin Bhagat on Unsplash

        I’ve driving Jeeps, one after another, all with manual transmission, for almost 20 years. Before that (before I got married 22 years ago) I had been driving Nissan classic Z-cars, two-seaters. They are not true race cars, but do come pretty close in the way they handle. I would buy them for almost nothing and have them restored. I am a motorcycle girl, Judy, and I still love rough fast cars. I did have that experience once, test-driving every Italian fast car imaginable on a stretch of a road with no speed limit. Exhilarating!
