Written for:  Poetic Asides #412 – Write a name tag poem.  The poem could be about a literal name tag (I’ve written one about a pencil before, so why not? But it could also be a poem that includes your name (kind of like a traditional ghazal includes the poet’s name in the final line). Or it could be a poem that defines you. Or go old school and work your name in via an acrostic poem–or some other sneaky poetic device.

At times,
Acts her age, overdosing when

Cookies are within reach.
New Yorker at heart
Unicorn believer
Lover of animals–
Tag me a mush.
Yearner of beach dreams and lavender scent

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.
