Processed Foods

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl

Words:  flow, fill, flirt, finish, freeze, fish, fibers, fingers, forge follow, feed, fringe

If you fill yourself
up on frozen fish
fingers, and follow
it up by flirting 
with food on the fringe–
all processed, no fiber–
you cut yourself off 
from flow of healthier 
foods which give you
the impetus to forge
ahead, and not be last
at the finish line.

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.
