“For today’s prompt, write a poem with dialogue. He said, he said. She said, she said. He said, she said. And so on. Poems with dialogue don’t happen every day, but we’re going to make a concerted effort with today’s prompt.”

He says, I saw you looking at him,
he seemed to be wearing a grin.

She says, Your jealousy’s souring this relationship
to the point of suffocation, Nick.

He huffs, Well you could tone down your makeup some,
and those skimpy tops that scream, ‘I’m Fun’.

She yells, Find yourself a prude who wears long frocks;
I am done. I’m changing the locks.

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.
