Loey Poetry – Black Leather Purse

Down on the floor slouching

but smiling

is a black leather purse.

It has eyes.

Three little silver buttons

arranged in a circle

makes one.

Another three arranged in a circle

makes two.

The big happy squiggly grin is

made of a golden zipper.

It’s unzipped and looks like

it’s saying, “What’s up?”

I’m sure it’s full of car keys,

gum wrappers, hand sanitizer,

wallet, loose change, pens,

pencils, gift cards –

with 37 cents left –

hair ties.

So, this black leather purse has a

face and a belly

and that’s about it.

    I ditto Luma’s comment! Say hi to Loey for me. 🙂

    Love the line about the gift cards with 37 cents left.

    Blessings,
    Pat
