Troikas, I

Dislike your albatross
necklace? Accessorize
with matching brooch

* * *

“Gone to the dogs!”
denigrates dogs
let’s cats off the hook

* * *

I am the black sheep
of an oddly monochrome
familial flock

Troikas, II

A story called the girl’s hair
‘flaxen’ and all I could
think of was my dietary fiber

* * *

Naked mimes
don’t really have to say
all that much

* * *

Right place, wrong time.
Wrong place, right time.
Fine lines, leaky pens
