Inspired by “Microfiction Monday
where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer.”

  Pancho’s mind was on Feleena.
He saw her ayer at Rose’s Cantina.
As he imagined her dancing there
The rattler caught him unaware
The End

~140 characters~
ote: “Ayer” is Spanish it translates to “yesterday”.  It was shorter in Spanish.  I cheated.  🙂
This story of Feleena is based on Marty Robbins’ El Paso trilogy which included El Paso, Feleena, and El Paso City.

  1. I love it! You gotta watch those rattlers! Welcome to the fun and thanks for the visit/comment! Always appreciated!

  2. Oh my gosh, can’t daydream in the desert!
    I’m not a fan of snakes….good one, made me shiver a bit.

  3. wow….you went for it..good for you
    and funny too

  4. I couldn’t help thinking about rattlers too…

  5. Excellent, Faith–unrequited love, desire and death all in 4 lines of a poem! Well done!

  6. Very clever. I like your take=off on the Marty Robbins’ story.

  7. ‘Ayer’…. that’s my bit of self-improvement for the day! A new word learned! I was a little worried at first.

  8. I like how the final line doesn’t rhyme or fit with the rhythm of the rest of the poem. Makes “The End” all the more abrupt.

  9. Marty Robbins. Oh, good one. I like it!
