Packing

Written for:  Poetic Asides April 2017 Challenge – Day 20
Write a task poem.

Each day my task is the same,
pack this wrap that, mark the box.
There’s no way to make it a game.
Each day my task is the same,
Being ready to move is my aim.
I feel like an overworked ox.
Each day my task is the same,
pack this, wrap that, mark the box.

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.
