does not look that far
Joe is strapped in tightly
heaven and stars await

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.

    A powerful seventeen, Sara.
    My Aerospace Engineer advice from experience is,
    “Have high hopes for him
    Wouldn’t trust the straps so much ”
    Should hang on tightly
