Cockroaches Spilling Out of Her Mouth
For my Coursera poetry workshop. Need to do an extended metaphor. A conceit. So I'm doing words v cockroaches.
Too much champagne
She whines and complains
Cockroaches spilling out of her mouth
They crawl on the sofa
Climb over the hors d'oeuvres
On spindly shiny little brown legs
They fly into glasses
Drop into low cut dresses
Contaminate all that they touch
Guests with better manners
Excuse themselves discreetly
While I beat a hasty retreat
For the nearest exit
