CREATE A POEM INSPIRED BY THIS LINE IN A MARGARET ATWOOD POEM:
“WE ARE LEARNING TO MAKE FIRE”


Cold
shoulder
doors
slammed
lower
pay
under 
boot
no 
equality
so
many
years.
No
more
senseless
killings.
like the caveman
we are learning
to make a fire.

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.

  1. I wish we could learn more quickly how to treat others-all others- in the way we would hope to be treated!
