Black and white night,
blinding garish lights–
background for a writer
who squats in its midst,
taking it all in 
by counterculture measures.


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.

    Counterculture ~ I try to imagine living it, but my Midwest 40s / 50s mentality can’t relate.
