“always open”

Written for:  The Twiglets #103 – “always open”

Sign said, Always Open.
a mixed-race couple
were told they just closed.

always open
your mind
to new thoughts

There once was a man from Hoboken
who coughed with his mouth wide open
one day a fly
just passing by
alit on his tongue. Fly escaped while man was chokin’.


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.
