Foiled Attempt

Written for:  April 2022 PAD Challenge  Day 25

"Write a response poem to another poet's poem or an earlier one 
 of your own."


 (Response to Day 12's Escape Attempt)


Thought you could break
Out of prison
Stood a minute too long
Light swept across you
Years tacked on to sentence

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.
