"Use 'upside down' in a poem.

Inside rings of
pineapple, Mom placed 
maraschino cherries
on the bottom layer 
of her upside down 
cake.  Scent of gooey 
glaze–brown sugar
and melted butter–
made my mouth water.

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.
