“packed in cars”

Written for:  The Twiglets #190 - "packed in cars"

Spare tire packed
into trunk of car
was flat.

Family of four parks
in beach parking lot.
They remove chairs,
containers of food,
drinks, and toys.  
When all is unloaded,
they set everything up 
on the concrete of 
the parking lot.

she was done, packed
all her belongings in car
never coming back

A regular sat at the bar,
good thing he did not drive a car.
He fumbled for money
tumbled on to his knees
screaming 'law suit–floor's as sticky as tar.'


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.

    Fun – Always a delight.

    (As for the new block editor – I am not using it…and will not if I can avoid it. It isn’t nice for poetry at all. I operate out of the WP Dashboard and copy and past my stuff in my post in the HTML first and then Visual if I have to add photos…) Where I then can still add color and center etc.

    Why WP had to fix what wasn’t broken is beyond me. And I’ve told them that – there was some kind of survey on the end of some kind of email notice/ update thingy that they send to try and get you to upgrade. Maybe others have complained too that this new thing isn’t good for poets… and that’s why they supposedly added that you can go back to the old editor somehow (I read on another post or article).

    Fun verses – sent you an email….
    Your posts aren’t taking my comments… yet since ‘The’ switch?
