Written for:  The Twiglets #138 – “glow in the dark”

I remember
black light posters
that glowed in the dark.


If teeth,
false or not,
glow in the dark
you’ve used too much whitener.


midnight sky
pin pricks of gold flash circles
fireflies glow


Her hair glowed gold in ebony sky
the only time she’d go out, but why?
Upon her he’d cast a spell
for with him she would not dwell
Rued his deed too late; fate turned him into a fly.

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.
