Adventure in Porta-Potty

Written for:  Poetic Asides #491
“For today’s prompt, write an anecdote poem. An anecdote is a short, often interesting, story about a real incident or person. Like I might write a poem about something someone said or did at the post office when I went to buy stamps, or maybe something amusing happened at the grocery store.”

I could not pretend it was not me
embarrassed, flushed to top of my face.
Used porta-potty for badly needed pee.
Set my camera down where it would be safe

I thought. Into the blue depths it slid.
There was no way for me to fish it out.
Mortified, I reported what I just did.
Camera, rescued, gushed blue like a dead trout.

Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 491

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.
