Huffy Fluffy Hotel Stuffy



With both taps running, there I sat
upon the bath's cold edge
And bubbled up a violet froth
with candles on the ledge 

Slid under purple water,
muscles calling out with glee
Think I'll stay here till I'm purple, too
(or feel the need to pee!)

Dreamy-warmth, the bath was over
by a sharp knock at the door
Reminding me I had to be
some boring place by four

So hauled my pruned, red baggage
out from marbled luxuree
Reached over to the golden ring
and pulled the towel to me

A fluffy, puffy, cloud-like thing,
too soft for drying bits
Like the scoopy parts one squats for
or under both my ti pits

Call me fussy or ungrateful
but I need my towels rough
Like a sheet of coarse sandpaper
scratching up a peachy buff ! 

Lest it never feels entirely clean
and dry upon oneself
If my choice of terry towelling
isn't all dried out itself........

Funny ... rough is the way I like my towels too!!

Helen said...

Probably should have added, the better to exfoliate.

Other Mary said...

The rhyme and meter add to the humor of this...I like that you had to be 'someplace boring' lol. This is fun and well done!

Yvonne Osborne said...

Perfect rhythm and cadence for fun. I love a candle by the bath and hate being called off to boring places.

Brian Miller said...

ha. i rather like the rough towels as well....lol...this was fun, intimate in a fresh way...and the meter and rhyme works really cool in this as well..

I've never used the rough towels - perhaps I should try those!

Kathe W. said...

I too like my towels to have a certain texture...too soft and they don't dry very well! Have a lovely day!

There are so many great lines...

I am truly amazed how that painting has taken us venturing into new paths...

Dick Jones said...

Neat and clever!

Lyn said...

I'm so glad you wrote this...I really needed it...and between rough and soft..that's good enough for me!

Kutamun said...

So lyrical, swept me along for the ride, thanks !

mindlovemisery said...

This made me smile! Very cute =)

Tess Kincaid said...

Cute write...delightful...

Friko said...

Actually, I prefer the rougher kind of towelling. Soft just doesn’t do it.
You know what? This is not what Degas intended, you are far too irreverent about the old boy and his muse.
But funny.

Helena said...

Helen - YAY! Another rough drier.

Mary - thanks. It takes a lot to rip me from my Radox these days though!

Yvonne - so you know the feeling too!!

Brian - it seems yonks since I paid a proper visit to you. Catch up soon!

Keith - rough and ready, rough and ready....LoL

Kath - thank you. Another YAY!

Gautami - I'm enjoying the diversions here, too!

Dick - many thanks.

Lyn - yeah, I like the in between feeling, too.

Kautamin - Just a quick Sunday road!

M-L-M - A Sunday smile's a needed one, I guess!

Tess - Ta.....I'm enjoying this week's prompt immensely!

Friko - Thanks Friko, and I apologise if I've offended an idol of yours, but there was no disrespect intended.

As Degas painted all those skuddy bathing women, in all compromising and awkward positions, I didn't think he'd mind if I used a bit of humour here on this rather tasteful prompt. But I likes a giggle, me.....!

Sounds like a step up from your stay at the But 'n' Ben, anyway!

Dave King said...

Love the humour in this. You handle it beautifully and the allusions, though fun, have an underlying seriousness, I feel.

Sue said...

This was lots of fun! Loved the verse and have to agree that those "too soft" towels just don't cut it!

=)

izzy said...

Jenny Woolf said...
