“foreign tongues”

Written for:  The Twiglets #192 - "foreign tongues:

How many people
hear you speaking
in a foreign tongue?


His tongue was foreign to her.


starts first day of school
carries backpack and his lunch
does not speak English


                    There was a man from Kalamazoo
                    quite proficient on the kazoo.
                       He played late at night
                       causing many a fight.
        Though he blew nice tunes, neighbors threatened to sue.

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.

    I think his year with all the adjustments we have had to make – that’s a whole new language in survival.

    As always I enjoy your many verses. 🙂
