I've been doing poems with fives

Mickey in Five Stanzas
By GC SMITH

Pinko, commy, sum-bitches
story line from the fifties
won’t work today

Velma, sweater girl extraordinaire
with pointy, circle stitched bra
is a passé image

Cops and the Assistant D.A.
beating on old Mike Hammer
cliché, cliché; not today's way

Fast gun, lotsa fun
especially with no consequence
but that won’t fly in the current genre

Writing mysteries
has become demanding,
Betcha, Mickey’s glad he’s dead

Prestidigitation
by GC

'cause I used fingers

digitation

Fingers
by GC SMITH

Fingers,
five of 'em
the middle one
stands out
a flag

Fingers,
five of 'em
the thumb
stretches out
to catch a ride

Fingers,
five of them
one an index digit
to riff
a book's pages

Fingers,
five of 'em
a gold band
not a nose ring
encircles one

Fingers,
five of them
the itty-bitty one
doesn't belong
in your nostril

Finger's,
five of them
clenched
thrust heavenward
high fives the world
