Day 26: title your poem with a word invented by Shakespeare.



You walked into the party

Like we all belonged to you

Boisterous, needy and brash

Unaware of any feelings there

That weren’t your own to bleat about

And though I hadn’t met you before

I was reminded of a beloved quote

From my coffee cup, the one loaded

With delicious Shakespearean insults

I do desire we may be better strangers.
