If I (a fun form called Triquatrain)

If I

If I pulled a rabbit, out of habit,
from a fancy black top hat,
would you stare, unaware
of how I managed that?

If I painted a rainbow of Day-Glo
colors clear across the sky,
would you trap it by snapping
a picture, and create a slide show?

If you saw me ride on the hide
of an elephant, smiling,
would you envy me, and want to be
up on his back, looking beguiling?

If I said I lived inside my head
where imagination is rampant,
would you think me sad, or quite mad,
with the brains of a strange houseplant?

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
