Awakening Beauty

She woke up choking on it
the seed still stuck in her throat
hungover from drugged sleep
and a dream of seven mad kings.
An apple martini, a song beat cue,
everything leading to a man.

She found her dress on the floor
and her purse missing $20
but the keys intact.

From a dverse prompt

  1. Definitely got a chuckle on your retake of a classic, apple martini’s sound very dangerous and some lessons cost more than others, sounds like she got off easy!!

  2. I mistakenly put this on the dverse link, so it’s an older poem now, but I’ve been waiting for quite some time for someone to notice how blue this particular Snow White is… 🙂
