Who Wins The Game Of Give And Take?

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2, Prompt #344
Neither a Borrower Nor Lender Be

"We are borrowing and lending. In any machination of these terms, write your poem. We’re looking at a borrow poem, or a lend poem."

If I could borrow
your charisma 
for a day, I would
gauge my success
by the faces I had

In return, I would
agree to lend you
a day's worth of
brains, just so
you could know
what they are.

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.

    Sarah, I like how the twist in your poem sticks to the theme posted this week.
