Prompt Tuesday: April 30, 2013
A Visit with Norma Desmond

her cat was Gloria Swanson
returned from the dead
and ready for her close-up.

she needed to move farther away
from Sunset Boulevard
and to cut back on the microwave popcorn.
and placed the black and white beauty
on my lap
where it perched
with hooded eyes
and a haughty flick of its whiskers.
As the feisty feline climbed up closer,
apparently to sniff my nose,
the thought occurred that psychosis
could very well be contagious
as the kitty began to purr,
"DeMille... DeMille... DeMille..."
Bekkie Sanchez invited me to the Google+ Community called "Show Offs" where she posts a writing prompt on Tuesdays and gives those who wish to participate a week to enter. Bekkie also posts the "Prompt Tuesday" entries on her Show Offs Community Blog. If you have a moment, please check out the community and the blog. The community is about a whole lot more than writing.
