Sprawl

The small blue cloth

with which I wipe my glasses

has sprawled itself across

a black eyeglass-case, as some

boozy singer-dancer

might sprawl herself across

the unflappable piano-man.

hehehe... a flair for the dramatic, it seems ;) What a colorful scene to describe the state of your glasses' wiping cloth! I especially liked the "unflappable piano player" bit - how funny. Wonderful :)

Love it! I can visualize the sensuous singer completely. My eyeglass cloth takes on the rumpled edges of a wrinkled shirt on a hot day. I much prefer yours!

Wonderful image of a languorous singer in a slinky satin dress
draped across a piano. Bravo Tom!
