‘My Mother-In-Law’ – A Poem By Red Robbin

**This poem – as with many of the poems on this site – was written many years ago. About 20 years ago to be semi-exact. I’ve uploaded them here because I still like them and think they might be worth reading.**

My Mother-In-Law


Arrested by her own image, she taunted it

With a come hither sashay and thrusting pout

Daring it to jump out

Of her gold encrusted… Everlasting Looking Glass


Her silvery locks draped like Arctic Fox on pale shoulders

Swathed in crushed obsidian velvet

Trapping her feline curves

Into libidinous submission


Satisfied she looked bewitching

She sucked the fire up from her loins with a catch

Letting Chanel 5 encourage her lust

The glowing new widow was a vision to behold


Straightening herself

She floated from atop the antiquated staircase,

As an ominous black mist

Hers was a violent, calculated elegance


Spattering the mourners with brilliance

Oozing coital readiness,

Unfazed by her menopausal haze

She stole her way through the somber soiree


Sharing her venomous kisses,

Leaving a trail of carnage in her wake

Her icy blue eyes narrowed as she neared the coffin

Looking down upon his blank face she silently thanked him for the bequeathed fortune


She leaned in to kiss his cold cheek;

The face of her vernal lover came to her

As organ pipes vibrated with Chopin.
