The Date

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe  (posted by Devereaux & Beth)

"Today’s prompt: Write a piece of prose or poetry that uses the words highway and finishing touches."


She had not
had a date in
a long while,
and hoped to be
wearing a chic
enough style.
Lipstick was
her finishing 
touch; did she use
too much blush?
She wanted 
and needed a night
on the town, but not
via Hell's Highway.

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.
