Poem: "Opening Doors"

This poem fills a square on my second card for the [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo fest. This fest encourages people to create and share material focused on what is variously called fluff, schmoop, gentle fiction, light reading, comfort reading, positive thinking, chicken soup for the soul, or anything else that offers a fun alternative to usual run of sex, violence, and angst of modern media. I'm hoping to attract some new readers for my writing.

The following poem belongs to my P.I.E. series, which you can explore further on the Serial Poetry page. Brenda Cochlain, Private Investigator Extraordinaire, deals with the really  weird cases. She also happens to use a wheelchair; and she can kill with guns, blades, or her bare hands if necessary.   She's interested in Darrel Finn, an undercover cop. He thinks that smart, tough women are hot. This puts him ahead of Nate, a lawyer; and Rick, a construction boss -- the other two guys interested in her.

Fandom: Original (P.I.E.)
Prompt: Meeting the Parents
Medium: Poetry
Summary: Brenda and Darrel discuss relatives, work, and other weirdness.
Content Notes: Flangst.  Food.  Acceptance and rejection.  That moment when you realize: oh yikes, she comes by it naturally.
