Tilted World

Written for:  Sunday Whirl, Wordle #491

Words:  untethered, speak, plan, future, text, play,
        world, travelers, fresh, divide, hurt, clothes

The untethered world
has tumbling travelers
in tattered clothing
playing with their 
future.  Fresh turns
stale like rock-hard
donuts left uncovered.
When the travelers speak
of division you can feel
their hurt.  It spurts
like blood from every
pore.  The only solution
is come up with a rational
plan.  For now, the travelers
tilt and tumble.


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.

    A rational plan. There’s a novel idea! Sadly, a remote one.
