Written for:  Margo Roby’s Poem Tryouts
I had promised a pot luck day, today, so you may happily browse the Net for a painting, or a photograph that yells ‘Helloooo!” as you go by. Or, you can look at the photograph I will post for those with no Net time this week and see what it sparks.

If you wait much longer
to notice me, I will
be gone, vanished
to a doggie limbo.
I need to play,
and take more walks.
Why did you take me
in, if you are going
to ignore me. Tomorrow,
you will only see my ears.
This is your wake-up call.

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.

    I love the image you leave us with. I am sitting here with that image: two black pointy ears and nothing else. Hah!
