Write an intelligence poem

color of
pink applesauce,
walk into a bar
takes a seat, orders drink
and calmly removes his head.
Bartender says, you can’t do that.
How will you drink with no mouth? Are you
stupid. Creature points to his three navels.
Only your race drinks with their mouths, Headless
says, arranging his six legs to form
a circle. Patrons stare, scared
stiff. Where are you from? You’re not
human. I’m far smarter.
Creature chuckles. Because
my IQ is art
-ificial? Seems
you are far

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.
