Take a Chance Monday: Flashback Poetry

Take a Chance Monday: Flashback Poetry

This is the first poem that I’ve shared in about thirteen or fourteen years. I used to read at open-mic nights. Sometime between then and now, I became more secretive about what I was writing or if I was writing at all.
I’m hoping that someone can tell me if I should keep writing in public or keep it under wraps. Do they have things for poets who retire like rappers who hang up their shoes on the wire?
Anyone is welcome to share poetry or any sort of writing. Feel free to repost and share with others. Thanks.

Last Saturday
I wanted to tell you
that the moon
was on the other side of
your trailer.

I looked at you and smiled
“I love you”
But we could never understand
that kind of energy

At dawn, you closed the door.
So I found comfort
in a pink robe.

Every Saturday
I forget about
capturing your
trailer park moon.
