Parry (an acrostic poem)

Pushing around the deckchairs

Actively seeking the avoidance of responsibility

Reaching into the bag of tricks for something distracting

Running interference on reality

Yet reality knows she owns me

Hostile (an acrostic poem)

Hacking the electronic lock was Pascal’s job, and it should have been easy

Oscar pointed his gun down the hallway and let loose a short burst

Still can’t open it?” he yelled as he pulled back around the corner

Too much going on,” she grunted as she tried again

Instead of responding to her, Oscar jumped back into the hallway

Letting have her a few more moments

Even as his body fell to the floor and the door finally opened

My Brain Dump (an acrostic poem)

Musings I needed to write

Yearning to go to sleep, I throw this out there

 

Believing in yourself and trusting your inner voice

Rarely will steer you wrong

Ask the questions that need answers

Inscribe on your soul the names of your loved ones

Never sell yourself short

 

Determine your guiding star and follow it

Until you reach your destination

Maintain due diligence on the world around you

Push your limits to grow your boundaries

Catching Up (an acrostic poem)

Cat and mouse described Nat’s relationship with her peers

At least that’s how Nat saw it

To be the mouse was tiring, but Nat put up with it

Coming to grips with being a target was built into her persona

Having success from an early age was a mixed blessing

Inspiration to some, a threat to most in this male dominated world

Never really at easy in the power dynamic

Given that women were still looked at as either being subservient or a bitch

 

Until men would stop pawing her figuratively or physically

Perhaps she would need to become the cat in this relationship
