New Face, Same Guy

Written for:  Poets & Storytellers United – Weekly Scribblings 21:  anagrams
(posted by Magaly)
“Write new poetry or prose using anagrams.”

He was on the alert,
would have to alter
his appearance. They
were on to him, no
doubt about it. He
was off the grid,
needed to gird his
loins until he saw
that the heat was off.
Will be hard to get
used to a new face,
but at least he will
lose the wen on his chin.

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.

    Giggled out loud at gird his loins ~~ a glass of wine at happy hour with neighbors sitting six feet apart in one our driveways made it even funnier.


  2. Ha ha, good one – both excitement and humour in such a small package, and such clever short anagrams. 😀


  3. A poetic thriller! I like it. I also like the subject’s positivity.
