Dark Humor

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #425 - "Who Are You?"

"We all “look” for ourselves from time to time. Who are we? Think of a trait or an aspect of yourselves and make that a basis for your poem. Are you kind? Artistic? Miserable? Write it and make sure it’s in the form of a poem! (Jeopardy theme plays)"

My sense of humor
tends to run
to darkness,
so often misunderstood
by those without one.


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.
