A duty to confess

The varlet,
yes
they say I am

A varmint

One who would be the
variegator
at the site of her
bloom

In detail,
I am at duty to confess;

there is no control
of the varix
of mine loom

    I must say that you have a broad vocabulary or did some very intense research to find these words to write a subtile, oh, I mean subtle(meaning delicate or demure meaning) work..I don't think that you are a varmit just a human under control I hope..Sara

    James, Thanks for stopping by..Yes, the threat that we once lived under slowly disappeared but after the 911 incident of a few years ago now stays at the back of my mind..Sara

    I confess dear James that in your varmint state you do manage to instill some mystery and questions that I would like answers to; but you are there, I am here and the subject is much too complex to solve in this little space, so your loom will have to weave what I need to know! Love, Lizzie

    You have woven a mystery, dear Sir James. Is the Varix a part of a loom? No matter. You, as usual, have little control in matters of this sort, but must constantly offer apology for what, for you, comes so naturally. Love, daver

    I don't know why but parts of this reminded me of Dr. Seuss! the varix of mine loom. Such an unusual way you have with words, my friend! A fun read.
