Urban ____.  Replace blank with letter or phrase.  Make it the title of your poem.

Ten shot
gang war violence,
cross-fire kills children.
Altars of flowers fill the streets,
hearts torn.

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.
