Written for:  Poetic Asides 2019 April PAD Challenge – Day 17
Write a reason poem.

I do not need a reason.
Why? because I am your mother.
Cry all you want–no pierced ears.
Dyed hair was bad enough; but this other

act of piercing, I find barbaric.
Fact is, it detracts from your looks.
Yackety-yak to all your friends,
bracket me as mean, the hit the books.

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.
