Costume Bully

Written for:  Miz Quickly - Day 31 - Costumery

"Put on a costume before you start to write. Decide to be someone or something you are not. (Don’t fight me on this.) You can be a princess. A prince. A poodle. A puddle. Mark Zuckerberg, a hamburger, Parisian, a soccer hooligan, your mom.

Once you get everything set–shoulders squared, hem straight, feet tied on–think about something from your costume’s point of view."

"If you and your costume can’t agree, write using at least five of these words:

foot, yard, back, fortune, game, apple, cemetery, own,
underwear, drinking, improvise, sang

My costume became a bully
tried convincing me to back Trump.
Reputation would be sullied.
My costume became a bully
its own fortune made it surly.
Put my foot down, costume was dumped.
My costume became a bully
tried convincing me to back Trump.

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.

    I’m not one for politics… but some folks need to stop making headlines and should quietly just disapear. Especially when ‘they’ were proven to be ineffective, inefficient and imbecilic…
    And that could fit a few egotistical politicians of all genders!
