tangled up in tryst


The Tryst (1840) Jean-Leon Gerome

Fandango’s One Word Challenge’s selection today is tryst.  Today’s offering is a series of senryu .


as he closed the door

to the room, he broke one heart

and burst another


dark end of the street

where lust and betrayal rise

unholy phoenix


working late tonight”

cliched lie for timeless tale

staled lust leavened


bodies never touched

but stolen glances conjured

untold torrid trysts


mommy said daddy

is leaving because he had tryst

is that like toast?


FOWC — tryst
