“off a little”

Written for:  The Twiglets #184 – “off a little”

When he proclaimed,
biggest crowd at a rally ever,
he was off by more than a little.

Just take a little off the top.

willow trimming
laden with summer’s growth
hard to even out

Heard it said they were off just a little
especially the son in the middle.
He liked walking nude,
had a bad attitude.
He’d shoot you with water gun and giggle.

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.
