Matchmaker

Written for:  Poetic Asides 2018 November PAD Chapbook Challenge – Day 7
“For today’s prompt, write a poem with an occupation as the title. For instance, the titles might include: “Governor,” “Teacher,” “Architect,” and “Engineer.” Or go with some of these creative job titles I found: “Director of First Impressions,” “Crayon Evangelist,” and “Chief Amazement Officer.” Or create your own.”

What is more rewarding than bringing folks
together. Love, schmove. What are the odds
that left to their own devices,
couples will be happier?
Let me make you a match,
darling. A nice boy
from good background.
You will learn
to love
him.

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.
