Fashion on Fifth

Written for:  Poetics Aside #346, write a coordinated poem.

Stiletos and handbag,
black snakeskin

Dress and lips
call out, Coral Sin

Black pearls wrap neck,
and dangle from ears

She is confident
has no fears

Quite a catch,
say moms of peers

pushing sons
in her direction.

Alas, they’ll never
pass inspection.

They call her
The Coordinator

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.
