Poetry #364
(published January 10, 2008)
Quik-Mart Conversation
by Daniel S. Irwin
I said, " 'Xcuse me ma'am
For my vulgarities.
My colorful vernacular
Is a product of the times.
Some words and phrases
Require a little embellishment
To clarify the intended
Rancor of wit and emphasis.
If anything that I have said
Has shocked or offeneded you,
May I offer my heartfelt apologies
For not toughening you up
By offending you sooner.
Cute kid. Take after his father?"
She picked up her dog and left.
