Tinsel Dreams

Drawn to Tinsel
Town, she finally
arrived, fresh off
the bus to a local
dive, called a hotel.
She spent days
at open auditions, tinseled
with girls who looked
like her.  Turned
away, she bought
a gold tree, trimmed
it with her flashiest


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.

    “tinseled with girls who looked like her”…..creative use of “tinsel”. Love it and the uplifting, whimsical ending.

    This might have been thousands and thousands of wannabe actresses … loved this, Sara.
