To Be of Little Consequence

Source


I have left my mark on you and I am sorry

I only came to play

They say we touch lives, sometimes I'm not so gentle

An accidental rustler, leaving my randy brand behind

I don’t mean to be of consequence

But that does not make me less so


Just to make your acquaintance, my endeavor

Perhaps leave the tiniest of fingerprints in your world

Not to rock it with my thoughts and thighs

A kick in the pants or a bulge therein

Was never a forethought

Just an occupational hazard really


For the impressions or scars I’ve left

I take full responsibility

As we travel around this universe we are bound to bump into

Or rub up against one another

Pleasure or pain determined merely by the force of impact

For the latter I apologize

For the former, you are most welcome

For this little lifestruck soul,

a "not so gentle" brand,

a gift from accidental rustler,

a tiny touch so grand,

a love for slight acquaintance,

a bulge past due for slam,

although a force of impact,

a million times be damned,

a universe we travel,

a rub to find quite memorable,

a life much less without it,

a memory not deplorable...

So that's why that "RB" is burned into my left cheek. I thought I backed up against a wood stove, but it must have been something else HOT

bbnix, a poem for me? I'm flattered.

The point is tom "I didn't mean to... unless of course you liked it."

Micky I'm a rancher's daughters I know how to tie knots.

Break any hearts lately? Being randy must have some unique occupational hazards.

My dignified Randy one, has sent the lotharios packing. She is no Charlie Sheen, but rather a fantasy for the literate fool.

She won't rub, but only snub, all comers that view her print on electronic paper. She will tease and fade away like an old soldier.

What a pity.

Randy rancher's daughter

offers no man quarter;

leads the lamb to slaughter

braised chops; knots were taught her.

Nikki- like the way you think!

Howdy randslam. I'd like to think I'll fade away more like a good dream. You know the kind. You wake up and aren't exactly sure why you're smiling so big.

I've rescued many a lamb from mother nature's cruel spring storms sligobay. But yes I did make a meal of them later. :P

I forgot to mention that I simply loved your poem. "Not to rock it with my thoughts and thighs" was a simply brilliant image.

A romp through fields

On a blissful sunny day

I forgot to give the beautiful sows their hay

We wandered softly,slowly finding our way

Though the wind licked prairie

Forgotten chores, waves on the shores,

A tryst in my mind, oh my

A daydream can be unkind, as,

Unfortunately,the only tanned hind was mine....

Ropes and stirrups, and surly giddyups have more purposes and places than just our barns!

Sooo, two little notes of interest Enigmatic.

1. Whilst doing archives, found a photograph of my Grandmother buck naked on a horse... bareback and beautiful.

2.Was told within the last 48 hours how round and firm my hind was...

just throwing it out there for you amusement.

Love your closure... very good, Ms Behaviour. (Hey isn't "Randy" a Brit term? ;)

I thought you'd notice some similarity to yours. British? I don't know, but I do have some of both in me. Randiness and English blood so it is apt.

i like this a lot - the randy brand - nice and i just lately thought about the interactions we have with people and how much we influence each other - for the good or bad...loving...hurting.. and even if it's just a touch for a short time...it will leave marks and traces and think this is just how life is and maybe also what makes life so worth living..
