Follow A Parolee?

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2020 PAD Challenge:  Day 3
Write a “Follow (blank)” poem.

come one,
taunts his old friend.
For once, take a chance,
put it in your pocket.
Fearful friend scoops up a watch.
The two stroll slowly toward the door.
Alarm goes off, guard grabs feckless friend.
Parolee pulls out gun, is shot by guard.

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.
