Label said, Lucky Seven,
a soothing miracle
drink.  Comes in all
colors.  This must be
the elixir her missionary
guide had recommended.
Hidden in this bottle
were seven powerful
herbs that were touted
to force out grief.
Desperate, she wished
to believe in miracles.
So overpowering was her
sorrow, she felt imprisoned
in it.  With trepidation,
she bought a bottle.  Drank
it.  Scammed again.  She woke
and found herself in the same
cage she had created.

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.
