“corners of thirst”

Written for:  The Twiglets #239 - "corners of thirst"

thirsting for
around the corner

small places ache
for old times

diligent study
needs to quench a raging thirst
for education

           Together they sat on a bench
         pondering what liquid would quench
           their thirst in this heat.
           They were sodden and beat.
   Entered a bar, and remained entrenched.

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.

    Even with the rains we have had… storms (two in a row) the humidity is too high for me!

    “small places ache for old times” … Oh, this is so true. All the downtowns that were devastated by the big malls and now even those are struggling.
