Confessions Of A Disco Queen






I suffer in poverty for lack of baroque emotions; glimmers to decorate my eyes would be an anomaly as deja vu smiles blend the grays of going through the motions~ I am poor but for the rich ennui now my life’s homily. Once, I had danced with rhythmic elan embellished with passion in dilettante days of hedonistic ways for amusement, carte blanche in disco nights of sexuality in fashion, cacophony jaded my being to lack of attunement. Youth was lost, soul sold in lustful lifestyle with wild avant-garde, bankrupting bona fide animation - sabotaged and scarred. Susan Ashley January 21, 2017 ------------------------------ ~ First Place ~ Contest: Ten Words Ten Lines 2 Sponsor: Silent One Required words: anomaly, avant-garde, baroque, bona fide, cacophony, carte blanche, deja vu, dilettante, elan, ennui ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ POTD ~ January 23, 2018

Wow! Another great piece... and another PotD!! Amazing stuff, Susan. I especially liked the "in dilettante days of hedonistic ways" part. All the best, John.

Oh Andrea, when I was a young teen, I couldn't stand that song because they'd play it non-stop on the radio. It felt like I'd heard it 50 million times back then lol! But now, the thought of Lola brings back such lovely nostalgia of simpler times.. I was really happy when you reminded me of it :)) Your lovely comments and kindhearted congrats are truly appreciated. Warmest wishes ~Susan

great depiction of an aging disco queen. Remember the Barry Manilow song about Lola? This puts me in mind of that!! Good luck in the contest. Those were hard words and you did a great job!

OMG Yes!! Her name was Lola. She was a showgirl. With yellow feathers in her hair and her dress cut down to there... The Copacabana! Ohh that's so funny Andrea that it reminded you of that - that's perfect lol! Thank you for the awesome comments, the Barry memories and the smile :)) Warmest wishes ~Susan
