On A Cold Note

Written for:  Poetic Asides #468 – Write a note poem.
“My first thought is that this is a poem written as a short note to someone. Maybe a list of tasks to perform, a note about the state of the house, or a love note. But there are also musical notes. And I can’t help but note that there are probably other ways to make notations in poetic form. So have at it.”

He left her
a blue note
of regret

She read his
scrawled words
and bet

this was not
his first blue note,
that he had

left others before her
whom he could not face.
With next woman

might she break it off
with a quick text,
‘sorry, u r no asset.’?

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.
