Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2016 Challenge – Day 19
Take one or both of the following prompts:  cool poem, uncool poem


Say, I’m cool
finished school
ain’t no fool

Read and write
in bright light
ain’t uptight

Shades and hat
no combat
ain’t a rat

Ice cube cold
soul not sold
ain’t too old


He smokes Kools
cigarette fool
not too cool

She feels fine
loves to whine
most unkind

They are snobs
hot-shot jobs
don’t hob-nob


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.
