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.

So hard to find a room at the ‘inn’ these days. Sometimes all that’s left is the hall. And you can’t visit if your person isn’t in a room! And some only allow one per. Tough to figure rubberneckers. Fire Police (some are volunteers) who help direct traffic around accidents have a challenging job.
They do have a tough job, and often a dangerous one.
