Paradox Haiku

Fight for their freedom

Teach them tactics, provide arms

Force them to love you


Homeless animals

Rent heart.  Rescue them, love them

Feel guilt eating meat

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.
