Wrong(ed) Man

Written for:  Poetics Aside #447
Write a release poem.

Staunchly, he proclaimed his innocence
from a cell for twenty-five years.
Evidence pointed toward guilt
until his case came up
for review in light
of DNA–
not a match.

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.
