mourn chipped soap mark draw work mail catalog  
threadbare (poor or shabby in appearance)
mend broken 

to mourn a failed encounter
chipped at the edges 
will need more 
than just soap and water

it will be off the mark
to draw an inspiration
from those who enjoy blissfully
a relationship that works 

a mail-order bride from 
a catalog of pretty faces
may not be revealing
the threadbare concoction
to mend a broken soul

  1. I’m impressed with how you take words that would appear to have no connection and turn them into poems!

  2. Wonderful to read Hank.

    Keep well.

  3. It is always a delight to see other writers take on the given words Hank.

  4. nicely done! You've weaved your tale wonderfully."a mail-order bride from a catalog of pretty faces" and the first stanza are very clever!

  5. To find someone is for real a true challenge... not easy for the brides either with just a pretty face as an asset.
