Bonnie & Clyde

    I saw the movie Bonnie & Clyde with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway and I have been hooked on the stories of Bonnie & Clyde ever since. I've always been fascinated about the fact that Bonnie Parker loved creative writing, especially poetry. I thought it would be kind of fun to tell a tale inspired by Bonnie and Clyde in prose poem form.


Think twice - can't forget - remember plan

Don't forget - get in car - everyone here

Pulse racing - sweat running - getting nervous



Target approaching - car stopping - get on out - go on in

Pull out note - grab the stash - watch your back

Mind spinning - head swirling    breathing shallow - head on out



Don't turn back - jump in car - yank out gun - shoot at cops

Catching up - pulse flying - sweat pouring

Getting away - turn in alley - escape escape escape



Pulse slowing - breathing normal - hiding out - has to stay

Can't go out - not today - another day - another job
