Flying Down...

Magpie Tales
Mag #136
To the men: "Anonymous" and my newest follower, my son,
who both say they bypass all my girlie posts. 
So here's the Magpie Tales photo prompt for Sunday, guys,
and below it is my "manly" poetic interpretation
Flying Down, 2006, by David Salle

He dreamed of going down
in a flight of winged terror
like a duck riddled with buckshot
spiraling down;
a sail without a ship
sinking into the deep;
a Cessna without a pilot
stalled in a backwash;
falling, falling...
squirming on the chaise
his nap time sweat
 mercifully interrupted
by her.
Laurel. See...not girlie at all:)

Now fellas, you have to go to Magpie Tales and check out how all my writing friends interpreted the same photo prompt!  Have a great day!!


  1. I can't remember the last time my nap time sweat was interrupted by a woman. Usually women are the cause of my nap time sweat.

  2. Very manly indeed. No girly words anywhere. Great job.

  3. well, i could think of worse interruptions...ha....we do tend to dream rather dramatic...action movies and played...not playing this week, but thought i would check a few out...

  4. Some dreams are best interrupted...nice write...

  5. This has something of the Bermuda triangle around it, Laurel, very mysterious ! . Going down on the chaise lounge , fascnating

  6. I love the rescue! Thank you for sharing this adventurous dream sequence, Laurel. A wonderful poem! =D
