If you could be a famous person for a day, who would you be?  Why?

Give me a stage,
some raw-voiced talent,
and energy to sing
that bluesy rock and roll.
I’d strut, a feather boa
draped ’round my neck,
a cackling laugh
when the crowd applauded.
I would say anything,
dress as outrageously
as I wanted, but please –
no ball and chain.


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.
