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.

    Funny story about a scolapasta… That’s all I ever knew for a good part of growing up.
    I went to a friends house and asked for it, since we were having pasta – she thought I said a baaad word!! Fun list.
