Music and Murder

Written for:  Friday Writings #61:  Such Inspiring Titles 

"I’m always curious about what other people are reading. So, for today’s optional prompt—which I am not using to fatten my to-be-read pile, really—I invite you to write poetry or prose inspired by the title of the first book you read, are reading, or will read in 2023."

Jazz fanatic, older detective,
male working with younger
crew, and reporting to known
associate–young, tough
woman.  Ever think about
solving a cold case?
They do.  With a desert
star shining over 
Los Angeles comes a labyrinth
of twists, turns, and rule
bending.  Keeps you guessing.
Bosch and Ballard make an 
ideal team, and they are
closing in.

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.

  1. Sounds enthralling and fun! I might give it a try. I was going to say, ‘But you haven’t told us the title!’ Then I realised that of course you have, in bold.


  2. Your pathway to the title is a nice bit of a mystery in itself. I agree, mysteries are such a great escape!


  3. What a lovely way to present a book… !!!
