Get Your Poem On/ 35 Brevitas

I am now part of the Brevitas group.  It’s an on-line NYC poetry group sharing poems of 14 lines or less.  My darling Mindy Levokove nominated me, and they accepted me.  I submitted my first poem to them which I wrote a while back.  I have received many encouraging comments.  Here’s the poem:

 

Hostage

he took my years

hostage

as he did his first wife’s

portrays himself

as the marrying kind

unafraid of

commitment

much like

a stalker

his love

an act

of hate
