Jackie

Written for:  Poetic Asides 2018 November PAD Chapbook Challenge – Day 17
“For today’s prompt, write a broken poem. There are so many things that can be broken: dishwashers, chairs, and chairs. People break records, bad (and good) habits, and spirits (sometimes their own). Heck, writing a poem is an act of breaking the silence. So, yes, break the silence today with your broken poems.”

Jackie Robinson
batted those runs in.
He broke the color line,
and with Dodgers he signed.

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.
