She stated
that she was waiting
for someone, holding
a particular 
count of sheets
in a package she was
asked to bring.
Sting operation caught
her in the midst of a deal.
Steel bars of cell still
held her boyfriend
as she watched

for his friend, who,
in the end was a snitch,
having done a hitch
himself. Her pitiful
demeanor on the stand
was captured by news
channels throughout
the city. In the end,
details of the burglary
and escape attempt
were made known
as she stated.

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.
