Blue For Lou

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Live Toads – Play It Again, Toads
Welcome to Play it Again, Toads! where archived challenges of this Imaginary Garden come to life again. Have fun exploring the side bar (2011 – 2016) and selecting your own or choose from three I’ve highlighted below.

Music with Marian ~ A Walk on the Wild Side (November 2013)
Dear Toads, you probably know that since our last music prompt, we lost the patron saint of freaks and weirdos, poet laureate of the streets of New York, lover, preacherman, and tai chi master who really needs no introduction: LOU REED.

My eyes are a paler shade
of blue, now that you are gone.
Sweet Jane is not a comfort,
nor is a walk
on the wild side. Who
will speak for New York,
now that you are gone?

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.
