Let's play Detective!
We'll put some gear
in a box–flashlight,
magnifying glass–in case
the moon shies sky–and a
felt-tipped pen for marking
our trail.  We can even
embellish our look if
we wear raincoats.  Check
with your folks to see
if they will let Spokes 
come along.  I don't relish
possibility of night
creatures.  Imagine if
they were from another
planet with weird 
features, and took us
away for all eternity?
Spokes would be provoked
into action.  So, let's
play Detective, but
I have to be home
by eight.

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.
