National Poetry Month Day 28: Lemon Flamingo

Today’s prompt is Lemon Flamingo and I wrote a free verse poem. Enjoy.

Not for commercial use. Also, has nothing to do with the poem, but looks cool.

Lemon Flamingo

I am the Queen
of the Lemon Flamingo
she declares, as her heels
click across the tiled floor,
with a sashay of her hips
and a smile
Yes, my liege,
comes the answer
and the bartender
slides a drink
into her waiting hand
A vodka martini, sipped,
bright red lipstick
staining the glass rim
I am the Queen
of the Lemon Flamingo,

she shouts,
as the neon flashes
and the music plays
