Card Game Disruption

Written for:  Poetic Asides 2018 November PAD November Chapbook Challenge – Day 19

“For today’s prompt, write a poem that uses at least 3 of the following 6 words: con, flush, oxymoron, pass, rub, toxic. Of course, ambitious poets will try to use all 6 words. And of course, there may be one or two poets who see 6 words as a signal to try something foolish like a sestina. And to that, I can only say, “Go for it!”

feelin’ flush, no con
toxic bad luck has rubbed off
pass me three cards please
Jeez, Bill, you spilt rum on me,
Get the Oxy, moron


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.
