Just another consumer That’s your topic.

Cacophony of contentious noise–
cash register, rustling paper,
plaintive complaints. Oil paintings’
vibrancy and scent mixing with cheeses
of all known pungencies. Far too much
to contemplate. I feel overstimulated,
and must take my leave.

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.
