Jimmy Boy Gets Advice

Written for The Sunday Whirl #176

Words:  serve, collaborate, listen, community, concerns, State, time, decades, care, chat, compromising, contact

Louie, the Lip? Yeah.
Some snitch tipped off
the cops. State got ’em
for collaboratin’.
He says they framed ’em.
But, he’s doin’ time–coupla’
of decades now. Listen,
Jimmy Boy, you take care.
Don’t ya dare put yourself
in any compromisin’ positions.
I was lucky to get off
with community service,
but I got concerns about you.
Ya gotta learn that ya can’t be
chattin’ up any known felons.
Stay well kid.  I’ll be in contact.

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.
