Hickory, Cotton, and Fools

Hickory, Cotton. and Fools

It was years later before we could talk about it
since we had all fallen in love with her back then.
She had a voice as soft as cotton and the persuasion
of a good hickory stick. In the beginning it was the
intoxication of lipstick, honey suckle, and devotion.

We surmised that she must have been involved with at
least three of us at once.  One getting a manicure
with the other two getting nails done with a rat tail
file. Pinocchio gets way too much credit she made him
seem like George Washington. Her end result  was like
cloning a lamb and a wolverine.

Tom Fool was a piker that finished in second place as we
all tied for first. Yet we were as much to blame as her
because there is always warning signs to heed if you are
not too busy taking selfies. At lease when the bait was
cast our way the second time we declined politely. 

Out in the past are hidden horrors we can hide from or
face up to like we did.  As we laughed at ourselves
and those sheep days we gave thanks to Little Mary
for bringing friendships our way and experiencing
a bad girl that would help us recognize a good one.

Quite a picture you've painted there, Weave.  I really like the combination of a lamb and wolverine.  It first reminded me of Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde ... then a flash struck of tenderness turning into a burning frenzy as the wolverine breaks free and expresses herself.
