This is my half, that’s yours.

Learn your math now, or you won’t know a whole from a half.


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.

    Fun American Haiku, Sara. I enjoyed it immensely, right away it reminded me that I often say I will take the ‘smaller half.’ Many times I get away with that.

    Well bullies always break the rules. Mind you being a second child that stole mother’s breast didn’t endear my brother to me. It took a very long time about 30 years!,
