This Book

Written for:  Poetic  Asides #510 – Write a “This (blank)” poem.

I guess I read
at a slower rate
these days. Each
library loan stays
in my home longer
than it should.
One-weekers are out
of the question. Up
all night reading
is bad for digestion.
My current book
is two-thirds finished,
and due tomorrow. What
are the odds it will be
on time? I guess I’ll
pay another fine.

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.
