Smiling Eyes – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon



More in the life of Pettigrew.


Smiling Eyes

Pettigrew is an enigma
once a month he likes
to wear an item of his
wife’s clothing
that no one can see,
but everyone
can see his smiling

  9. Amazing! Such a memorable character study in 28 words. Yes, I counted. I was rather on the impressed side. So I counted.

    Thanks for sharing that, Paul.
