“Write a cycle poem.”

Tall, thin, he rode
a unicycle all over
Greenwich Village.
Since I had not ridden
a regular bicycle
in years, I was awed
by this act. Ever after,
I imagine riding
a unicycle. That is why
they call it imagination.

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.

    I’d settle for learning how to ride a bicycle. I still haven’t done that yet.
