Blue Spill

Written for:   dVerse Poets Pub , Quadrille 11

Write poem of exactly  44 words, using the word, spill.

Can I spill my guts to you?
Draped in blue crepe,
Body aches, heart fakes beats.
Murmur white lies to soothe me,
Turn crepe into silk, slow
Beats to even rhythm. Can I
Spill my guts to you?
I promise to clean up
Afterwards.

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 in the process of returning to 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.

    Very neat! I can only think of spill as an item to light the fire or the gas . . .
