It's Saturday (but let's pretend it's Friday...)! Another Found Friday for you. This week's Found Friday comes by way of RhondaK, a self-described "9th Gen Floridian who paints funny bar signs and mermaids... [and is] also a Librarian and Pug-A-Holic."
RhondaK's poem "Noir Murder Death with Whiskey" was a noir-prompted poem that quite thoroughly blew my socks off (or rather, wooed them off with a combination of whiskey, monochromatic lighting and slow jazz). Here is an excerpt from the best poem I read this week.
There comes a time, your gin leg empty and your whiskey fullThat is just a sampling of the poem's potent homage to the noir/murder mystery genre. RhondaK writes with a steamy atmosphere that reads as if coming from the mouth of Bogart. Brilliant noir. Go have a read and drop her some feedback!
Your mind on a beautiful woman with a terrible story
You rush in to save her without feeling her knife at your throat
Have a great weekend, too!
