Mixed Company

by Sandy M. Humphrey

Still making laughter curl at the sides
Split down the middle; a sense of humor
Bordering on the edge of intellectual
With a sprinkling of streetwise lingo
Tailored by a wink of natural seduction

Yet she had forgotten what it was like
To move inside circles of mixed company
Telling tales whilst keeping secrets
Playing it safe though confident
She could be bad if only she wanted

As memory recalled when she was bad
She was good, very good, a little
Innuendo hinted as much and that is
All anyone would ever need to know
And he ever need be reminded

When moving in circles of mixed company

Strong words. There's no question that you back them in great style.

Suave. Sounds savvy to me.

Sandy you sound like my kind of lady. I especially like the line "when she was bad, she was good, very good"

Well rounded reminder to us all of the tension in social behaviour

You have my imagination wandering about trying to picture her. Reminded me so much of a niece (who publishes poems on this site) who could fit the bill quite well. I'm grinning. Thanks, Sandy.
