Meeting His Parents

Written for:  Onewomansquest (VJ) - Challenge #120:  Frivolous


She did not want
to appear frivolous
to her fiancee's
family.  She knew 
her laugh was higher
pitched than most,
but if she stifled
it, she might seem
to be choking.  Her
fiancee's family's 
good graces are
what she coveted.
Hopefully, no one
would say anything
funny.

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.

    Such a worry. I was always told my laugh was obnoxious. Can relate.
