The Moocher

Written for:  Poetics Aside #368 – Write a poem using at least three of the following six words: ghost, crack, free, hand, check, know

Dressed as a ghost,
he arrived at the party.
Empty-handed, he greeted his host.
Right on time; he was never tardy.
Cracked voice gave up his checkered past,
enabling all guests to know
who he was, and that he’d be last
to leave, soon as beer ceased to flow.

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 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.
