Language Past – #DVersePoet #Quadrille

She was legs, hips, breasts, and bone.

Same as a cow,

worth less perhaps.

 

Dredged up words

from the dark well of your mouth,

not ancient, just old.

 

“Ace”

a hiss,

curled around the syllable.

 

Careful,

you are wearing history

with no place here.

Tonight’s Quadrille prompt from the bar is the word ‘Ace’. I did a bit of a google search and discovered that in the middle ages, the word ‘ace’ could be used to be ‘of no worth’ or ‘bad luck’.
