Road Sign Girl

by Pug Puerileuwaite

Road Sign Girl
Edge of my lane
Attention held captive
No longer the same

Blonde ponytail
Wafts nicotine
From countless smokes
Both harsh and serene

Can't help but wonder
Waiting in line
When I finally cruise past
Will your gaze meet mine

Do I need to stop
Or just slow down
Fickle mixed signals
Are you playing this clown

Please give a sign
That I should proceed
Is a trailer nearby
To do the deed

Ever you stand
Preventing wrecks
Is perchance there an interest
In the opposite sex

You make it so easy
For me to just wait
Tinted windows conceal
I masturbate

How can you stand there
Day after day
Protecting assholes
For minuscule pay

Perhaps 'cuz you know
This prince you'll soon meet
In an '82 Escort
With flip-down rear seat

And what of coworkers
Who leer and harass
Were I not late for work
I'd be kicking their ass

Do they not know you're mine
Those ignorant jerks
Only I trench and lay pipe
That's one of the perks

Is there a drug test
To get that position
Is sobriety why
You rebuff proposition

You transcend all pretension
My diamond and pearl
Had I crappy suspension
You'd be rockin' my world

I admire your dignity
And also your grace
Despite the occasional
Beverage in face

Is there a place for us
Where we love and we function
No longer constricted
By constraints of construction

Alas I must go, love
In haste and in sorrow
For our paths lead apart
At least 'til tomorrow

Woooow my dear Pug,
I lost my breath
You are my drug
who is MacBeth?

Little Lamb said...

You look at other drivers! :-)

foam said...

come one pug ..
just give your heart's desire a bit of a nudge .. with your car as you pass her by ..
ya'll can get to know each other real well while she is suing you for every last nickel and dime.

puerileuwaite said...

Thank you for that
My dear Anna-Lys
I'm heading to Sweden
Hope you like fleas

***

Lamby - Of course I do! I hope you don't consider it cheating. What should I look at? The road? Boooring!

***

Foam - It's not so much the nickel; however I am quite fond of the dime. Besides, I'm optimistic that she's like that singer lady whose "love doesn't cost a thing".

Little Lamb said...

You should pay attention to the road while driving. You may look around at a red light. You don't even have to cheat to do that.

Serena said...

Wow, Pugsley waxing poetic. This is a whole new facet of The Pug. I like it!

boneman said...

astonishing work!
That, and, can you believe that the guy that made that statue knew that there would be a bird hat there, someday?
Kind'a like the cigarette girl. She knew you'de be looking from behind your tinted windows.
Knew you'de be drooling.

Cool poem, cool picture,
FIVE STARS!
oh...you mean this isn't you tube?
Oh well.
Stars, anyway!

dianne said...

Wow Puggles my sweet, you do have hidden talents, you amaze us all of the time, a poet as well.

Really great poem, great image, gosh I wish someone would desire me that much. ♡

If she is real, good luck my sweet,oh, the angst of wanting... you will have to start up a conversation or pretend your car has broken down. ♡

Enemy of the Republic said...

Pug on the hunt
Low standards he sunk
Ladies beware
The pug fears no dares.

How to resist the pug,
Through shadows, through plugs?
All I've got to say,
Heel boy! Stay!

Sassy Blondie said...

I just feel dirty now...

K9 said...

you mean ford escorts are still on the road?
what a dreadful space for a pug to unload
or to lay pipe or do the trailer park deed
no traffic jam can stop the spread of pug seed

puerileuwaite said...

Little Lamb - But it's soooo damned boooring. I have calls to make. I have faxes to send out. I have meals to eat. Also, we all have to find time to shave (except lesbians perhaps). Besides, the car practically drives itself.

***

Serena - I didn't know I had it in me. I suppose it's an exorcism of sorts. I can also come over and wax for hair removal, if anyone is interested.

***

Boneman - Thanks buddy. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Better a pigeon than a dunce cap, I suppose.

And I'm hoping you're right about her knowing what she does to me. I'd hate to think it's just a paycheck and that she's oblivious to my existence.

***

Dianne - Aw shucks. If only you could see me blushing. Heck, if only I could see me blushing.

But just remember that ANYONE can be desirable. You simply need a hardhat, orange vest and a hand-held stop/slow sign. The key is to not make eye-contact, as the most covetous prizes must appear unobtainable.

***

Enemy -

I know you don't mean
These things that you say
They won't kill my longing
Nor drive me away

Perhaps it's your plan
A way of letting me down easy
As you are spoken for
So our love would be sleazy

***

Sassy - Wow! I MUST have something special here! MOST ladies say that only after we engage in verbal or physical contact. That makes this our close encounter of the third kind.

***

K9 -

I must humbly admit
You do have a point
Though it's hard to be classy
Fresh out of the joint*



(* not true, but YOU try rhyming with "point")

boneman (and his wild zinnia) said...

my escort has more than 250000 miles on it, and though I have one of those weird donut tires on it, it smells like radiator fluid before i'm a few miles away, and that it doesn't start anymore without serious charging, it runs fine!
The truck however, starts and go-go-goes! Even with a leaky gas tank (I love watching smokers walk up close to the truck...HA!) and the windshield wipers don't work at all, but then, all this only proves one thing.




I need a new car.

ANNA-LYS said...

I will give You a nasty shower, so Your flees will jump for life. But, You know we have some laws here in the Viking Country besides, having other Pirate Bays than our own bays. You have to spend 6 months in quarantine before You can set Your paws on Swedish land.

/t. said...

i just
dropped in
dropped out, turned on,
and tuned in to see what condition
my condition was in -- gimme some skin

/t.

dianne said...

Oh Puggles my sweet, I am desirable, I just have to find someone who will recognise that. ♡

So I need a hard hat, an orange vest and a hand held sign, I cant take up cigarette smoking though...and no eye contact, try to be elusive...yes that could work. ♡

puerileuwaite said...

Boneman - I agree. It's time for a Boneman new car makeover. Maybe one of those Smartcar for Two's or a Kia Soul. I can picture you on the Soul Train.

***

Anna-Lys - If only I had a nickel for every time a lady on the Internet wanted to give me a nasty shower. Apparently everyone must have this requirement.

***

.t/ - Aw man! I dig it! Props for layin' it on me, bro! The L-7's have been trying to keep me on the train to Squaresville!

***

Dianne - I both recognize it, AND validate it. I'd consummate it as well, but the continents and oceans conspire against us.

Little Lamb said...

Wow! You actually called me Little Lamb. I don't remember you EVER doing that. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

NYD said...

Pug. Why all the poetry?
All you need to do to hook up with this trailer park princess is whip out your tire iron and her up-side the head with it. Then while she's out cold you can lay all the pipe you need and take her smoldering cigarette from between her still (unfortunately)clenched lips after your done.

Bon Appetite!

Helene (the Artist Formerly Known as Kate) said...

"Had I crappy suspension
You'd be rockin' my world"

Omg you are a riot!

And thanks for making me smile today! =]

puerileuwaite said...

Little Lamb - I don't know what came over me ... maybe it's time we get hitched. Do you of a good whipping post?

***

NYD - There was speculation that Ted Bundy may have had an accomplice at one point. After your comment, I am sure of it.

***

Helene - My goal is to make you smile everyday. Then perhaps at some juncture, you'll realize that you don't have to travel the world to chase the happiness I provide here for free.

puerileuwaite said...

CORRECTION for my reply to Little Lamb: I meant ... do you KNOW of a good whipping post?

Little Lamb said...

A whipping post? For what purpose? Are you proposing?

leelee said...

you have been reading Elizabeth Barrett Browning again haven't you...you're such the romantic!

HUGS 4 PUGS

puerileuwaite said...

Little Lamb - Ummmmm ... my lawyers have reminded me of a previous "12-CDs for a Penny" debacle and advised me to avoid all further interaction on this topic at this time.

***

Leelee - The seemingly more mundane aspects of the daily grind seem to bring it out in me. Perhaps it's my new way to cope in a refreshingly non-sexual, non-intoxicating* manner.

(* unless one considers poetry intoxicating ... which I do!)

leelee said...

oh so do I!!!

I so enjoy a bard

;-)

HUGS 4 PUGS

Little Lamb said...

Ok, I see how it is and I understand. You want to remain a free pug. I'll still box you in with my own way.

puerileuwaite said...

Leelee - I was hoping "bard" meant something kinky. :-(

***

Little Lamb - Gee, based on the alternative, maybe marriage IS the more desirable option.

leelee said...

We can make "bard" mean whatever your little puggle heart desires..I'm malleable.

HUGS 4 PUGS!

Little Lamb said...

Are you asking for my hoof in marriage?

Blanche DuBois said...

Well, Pug, "Deliberate cruelty is unforgivable, and the one thing of which I have never,ever been guilty of".So there is no need to mention Ted Bundy and I in the same blog post again.

K9 said...

dude, i'll get right to the point
it aint that hard to rhyme with "joint"
the poets prize to me anoint
uncurl your tail with disappoint

meant to tell you
one more thing
youre puggy face
makes my heart sing

puerileuwaite said...

Leelee - For specific reasons which I won't go into here, I bend over backwards for a woman who is malleable! Maybe that's why "Bend Me, Shape Me" is always in this Pug's iPod.

***

Little Lamb - If only you had asked me that question sooner. You see, the day before, I signed up for both the French Foreign Legion AND a stint as an Alaskan Crab Fisherpug. I simply won't have any time left for anything that requires real work. Maybe we can be engaged to be engaged when I'm no longer engaged in these other activities.

***

Blanche - I humbly offer my apology. Please understand that I was strung out on Stella(!!!) Dora cookies when I left that comment. Would it make us even if I introduced you to Karl Mauldin?

***

K9 -

Thanks for stopping to see me
I know how busy you are
And also that there's a Mr. K9
Which is WHY I chase cars

Damn this accursed death wish
That I seem to hold onto
For the feeling is mutual
I dream of being your Tonto

***

PUGLEY UPDATE: Check back for a NEW post (hopefully) sometime tomorrow!

leelee said...

gummmmmmmmmmby!

HUGS

Little Lamb said...

We could do that. We'll see.

puerileuwaite said...

Leelee - Pokeyyyyyyyyyyyy!

;-)

***

Little Lamb - Glad you see it my way. I suppose first I must not meet my demise in the icy waters of the Arctic, nor in the searing heat of the Sahara. Thus I may meet my demise with you, o' woolen one.

***

(p.s. - New post real soon! I know I've already lied to you once, but I'm not jerkin' your chains this time!)

foam said...

yes, you apparently are .. jerking out chains, that is ..
:)

dianne said...

Just came over my sweet to see if you're OK. ♡
Yep, just my luck the distance between us is so great, my attraction and love for you will never be consumated and now you have read about my encounter with the getaway car and the gunman you will never visit me here. :/
How are things going with your 'Road Sign Girl'?
Have you had any close encounters yet?
See,I dont mind sharing you but I think you have upset Lil Lamby. ♡

dianne said...

Puggles my sweet,I cant stop laughing, this must have to be the coolest blog around.
I have been reading the comments and your replies...they are all very funny...I especially liked the one by NYD :-), can you tell me why he has now become Blanche duBois? ♡

puerileuwaite said...

Foam - There are forces beyond my control, tearing me away from my blogging. But never forget that we'll always have that Chicago video.

***

Dianne - You never know. I've had a lifetime of toilets/loos swirling in the same direction, so there could come a time for change.

In fact, I can't trot past the khaki short-sleeve shirt rack at Banana Republic without fantasizing about being the next Crocodile Dundee / Hunter.

So don't be shocked if one day you see me peddling up the drive on a Schwinn Stingray in a khaki shirt. The only caveat is that I MUST film all of my "adventures" for a planned TV show on the Animal Planet network.

That reminds me: how would you feel about donning a crocodile costume?



(p.s. - You would have to visit NYD's blog and view our comment exchange on a recent post of his. You are very literate, so I'm assuming you already know about the Blanche DuBois character from "A Streetcar Called Desire".)

***

ANYHOO, again, I am hoping to get my next post out sometime tomorrow. Maybe I'll even be able to make the rounds to your blogs as well.

K9 said...

reports of a new post were greatly exaggerated.

leelee said...

such a tease...

I keep coming back...in hopes...and once again...my hopes are dashed..

I can't take it anymore..these endless games..this mindless manipulation..

I feel like a puppet on a string..

in other words...when ya gonna post a new post!

puerileuwaite said...

K9 - I got the message! You are one of the few who can successfully shame me into rushing out a new post. You have me under your spell.

***

Leelee - Ditto (see my comment immediately above). You and K9 have twisted at least one of my appendages into submission!

puerileuwaite said...

Tomorrow I need to make the belated rounds and visit all of you.

dianne said...

Lol my sweet, a 'crocodile costume'...wouldnt you just rather cuddle me, we don't have to wrestle. ;)
Yes I know that Blanche duBois was a character from that movie, I will go and check NYD's blog.
Bye sweetums...hope you will be back soon. ♡ xo
