They thought
if every part
of their bodies
were thickly inked,
new fires
in this
alien world
would not be
able to penetrate
thin skins.
They thought
this might be
a world in which
they could finally
survive.

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.
