this blogger I’ve been reading writes about broads

This blogger I’ve been reading writes about broads
and I think of the weak sauce in my diet
the thin beer in my glass
Moms Mabley
Lucille Ball
Peggy Lee
Lena Horne
Etta James
the divine Sarah
Ella
adults, real adults
not cougars
humans
Carol Burnett
Eartha Kitt
if you want to know which can hurt you worse
you ask a real cougar sometime
humans are tops in pain
humans are amazing at pleasure
Josephine Baker
Phyllis Diller
lots of creatures can fall in love
but only humans die from it
no bigger hurt than that
Bette Midler
Pearl Bailey
it takes a grown-up to be slain by love and carry on
grown-ups
doesn’t anybody want to grow up any more?
I love the children, but their appetites are so small
Shirley Maclaine
Joni Mitchell
I want more than one flavor
I want more than one sauce
I want to be surprised in life
I want to be surprised in love
I want to be entertained by a woman
who didn’t learn to make love
watching  porn on her lap-top
you misunderstand the use of a lap, little darling
get me a grown-up
get me two grown-ups
get me two, plush glorious grown-ups
who understand it all but who especially
understand me
Etta James and Peggy Lee might make you cry
at how the world can grow smarter and more stupid all at once
but hey, you go, Katy Perry

—Don Whittington

(This video starts with a little feedback but it goes away very soon. This is the best version I could find on You Tube. The first song, by Etta, is the most adult song I’ve ever heard. This song, by Peggy, is the most adult song I’ve ever heard.)

  1. Give me vintage, old, used, tarnished over new, sparkly, smooth in just about anything except perhaps food. And, don’t get me started on the use of icon or diva for someone in their 20’s.

    What a great way to start the day. Beautiful. And, hopeful.
