OLWG# 214- Rosalee Acuff

Written for OLWG# 214



The night I married Rosalee Acuff,
the moon shone a bloodshot red, so
the gipsy woman told us to go
or give it all up.

We had a short window.
We were young
We were impulsive
We were useless

The night I married Rosalee Acuff,
we were up till almost midnight fuckin’ around and drinking.
We wrote a list consisting
exclusively of pros and cons.

We had a short window.
We were young
We were impulsive
We were useless

The night I married Rosalee Acuff,
I convinced her that we should find
an Elvis impersonator to bind
us together – till death do us part.

We had a short window.
We were young
We were impulsive
We were useless

The night I married Rosalee Acuff,
We had a short window
We were young
We were impulsive



This week’s prompts were:

  1. bloodshot moon
  2. I should go
  3. chip away

  1. I remember a relative wanting an Elvis Wedding… ended up doing something simple and sweet, local without having to go to Graceland. Though they were more the opposite of the folks in your verse – I think the rest fits them to a ‘T’.
