Zip or Pull?

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub – Quadrille #52 – “Zip It!”  (posted by De)
“Okay, poets. It’s Quadrille Monday, and it’s time to put a little ZIP in your doo-dah. De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo) here, and for today’s Quadrille (a poem of exactly 44 words, not including the title, using one word we provide), I want you to use some form of the word zip.”

To zip or not to zip,
she ponders, weighs,
writes pros and
cons. Arthritis
is taking free choice
out of her fingers. Thinks
pull-on pants equals old woman
even though she is an old woman.
Comfort counts, but how to leave
jeans scene.

Quadrille #54: Zip It!

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.

    Awwww. This is sad, Sara, but somehow with a zip of humor to it. I think it’s that “jeans scene.” 😉

    Sad when our hands can’t just seem to do things like they used to ~ Just wear whatever is comfy, smiles ~
