Freckles (a quadrille)

Freckles

freckles are stand-offish
they refuse to connect
like scarecrows in a field
like mute sentinels……
(that last line’s a tad too poetic for me)
meanwhile I wait cravenly for a connection,
another “like”
to ride the radio waves,
all the way to my screen.

“Freckles” is the prompt over at dVerse (a quadrille is a 44 word poem)
