Yes, you are

My little quail of love

The Writer, Vernon Wade

Vernon Wade is a poet, author and freelancer. He has been published in The Gorge Literary Journal, Dualsport Rider Magazine, Hack’d Magazine, The Sidecarist, ROB Magazine and The Hood River News.

The world fills him with wonder.  When he looks at the sky he is lifted into flights of fancy, when he stares at the earth he is drawn beneath its surface. He is delighted to find the macrocosm and the microcosm equally mesmerizing.

Why do you argue with me,

when I tell you how beautiful you are?

Why do you roll your eyes and say,

“No, I’m not.”

as if I have no idea

what I see with my own heart?

You turn the stereo up

so loud a deaf kid could dance to it,

miming the lyrics with a provocative sneer on your lips

dancing like there is nothing else in the world

but you and the music.

The curl above your forehead,

bobs like the top-knot of a quail on the run,

your eyes are smoky and sparkle at the same time.

You can deny it all you want to,

but you had better believe

I know what I am talking about when I say:

“Darlin’

You are just as cute

as a bug’s ass.”
