A whistle starts me humming
to the tune of your bounce,
keeping down the racket

after playing tennis
in my skimpy white skirt.
Iím toasted to the knees

in popcorn, before wrapping
a package for Thailand, one
going to Norway, another

done up for Southern Rhodesia,
where a piano teacher lingers
over middle ĎCí recalling meó

the two of us in West Berlin
ice skating in gloomy winter,
a lemon dotted dress

her motherís sewn design
flattering her shape,
rebounding off my dreary hair

and the formless brown coat
I didnít like but couldnít leave,
like an old habitual marriage.

I think "popcorn" can be symbolic and a source of inspiration (i.e. popcorn clouds, popcorn blossoms, popcorn thoughts etc...). You got my attention, Kathy. Coincidentally, I also have a poem entitled "Popcorn" posted here at AD. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and best wishes,

Interesting allegories tied to old memories, popcorn, and even clothing here Kathy. Ouch on that last stanza with the old brown coat and the habitual marriage, too familiar to lots of people, but good poetry....Jerry
