Those Addictive Cookies

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July Covid-19 P.A.D. – Day 21
“What No Compete Clause?
“This Poem-A-Day road on which we’ve embarked has been touted as NOT a challenge and NOT a competition, and so we aren’t. But the sports which we’ve been without for this pandemic are nothing if not a compete situation. So we’ll write a “compete” poem. Competing to survive is always a good place to start.”

The girl scouts
try to sell cookies–
mint, shortbread.
They compete to see who can
sell the most cookies.

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.
