For my beloved April Fool

You revelled in rebellion,
In a swagger, renowned,
Infamous, even,
You held the golden star of,
Trouble, Mayhem and Chaos,
Sheriff.
Kicking dust in your Angel’s face,
Kissing goodwill goodbye, shaking
Hands with the devil,
And demonic drinks,
Laughing within hell, you were
Sheriff.

Screams, Shouts, Sighs,
Knocking at your knees,
Quivering upon your bottom lip,
Trembling in your palms,
Overcome by a love, a fear, unknown,
It happened, Sheriff.
Blossom tainted cheeks,
Wrinkly fingers and toes,
Flipped your world upside down,
Famously, I remember,
Sheriff.
Nineteenth of the month,
You said,
‘Pleased to meet you Ma’am’
