Unsettling World

Written for:  Poetic Asides 466 – The the phrase (adjective (noun), and replace it with the title of your poem.

I watch the news through finger slats
hoping to see just half the terror.
Morning arrives, more tweeted spats.
I watch the news through finger slats.
Anxiously await fake new stats,
and hope no fool pushed button in error.
I watch the news through finger slats
hoping to see just half the terror.

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.
