April is National Poetry Month so I'll be posting a poem of mine each day.


My Friend's Big Brother

My friend's big brother
never asked when he borrowed
the gloves I just bought.
(Whether I happened
to like it or not.)

 My friend's big brother
snatched up my sandwich
with a surly laugh.
(And gulped the thing down
in a bite and a half.)

My friend's big brother
had ice cube eyes
and never cared how anyone felt.
(But when someone hit him
you'd see the ice melt.)

  1. I love the "ice cube eyes" that melt! Perfect description of a bully. Thanks for sharing.
