Prisoner

Written for:  Poetic Asides November 2016 Chapbook Challenge – Day 1
Two-For-Tuesday:  Write a stay poem and/or write a go poem.

So
long
he waits
on death row
praying for a stay
of execution, a better
solution to the electric chair–or maybe not.

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.
