Written for:  The Twiglets #150 – “just focus”

This is number one.
This is number two.
Which looks clearer?
Okay, let’s do it again.

if you focus
on my right hand
you will never see
my left hand
steal your wallet.

gray squirrel, eyes dart
look closely at prayer-shaped paws
holding an acorn.

A man who was from Barcelona
Fell in love with a girl named Mona
Before they could wed
his intended fled
with a yoga teacher from Arizona.

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.
