See that turquoise
sign - the one that
says, Release?  Brand
new female-owned
speakeasy.  Some nights
they have color-themed
drinks, each a shade
of the chosen color.
Oh, shh!  What did
you hear?  Well, I am
not surprised.  She 
enjoys being dissonant
as a jarring wrong note.
Tune her out.  You need
to come and stay for
a while.  Tension melts
away.  You tell them

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.
