Romeo and Juliet in less than a minute

I wrote this one a while back.  It was published in the TCC-NW Campus journal, “Marine Creek Reflections,” in 2001.  Thought I would share it here now.

Romeo and Juliet (Condensed)
by Donna Hunter

In disguise
They met eyes.
Pretty she,
Excited he.
Much in love,
Stars above!
Parents hate
Sealed their fate.
Vengeance taken!
Meanwhile –
In a hurry
(Cause for worry)
Married soon,
They felt alarm,
Flipped their lids,
Bought the farm . . .
Stupid kids.

About dahnajeen

I'm Donna Jean Hunter. I'm also Donna Cox - former married name and the name I share with my children and with my ex-husband, father of my children, and friend. My 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Patterson told me I was a great writer and would be an author when I grew up. She always had me read my stories to the class, and even took me around to the other classrooms to have me read to them. I'm pretty sure the other kids all hated me that year. I don't care though. I love Mrs. Patterson. Of course she did not know then about the Internet and blogging and how much of what people read would no longer be on paper when I grew up. I have had a few things published in two college literary journals, and for a while during college, I actually received pay for working as a technical writer. Then for a few years I taught writing to teenagers as a high school English teacher. But other than that, I can't say I'm a writer in the sense that it is what I do for a living. But I am a writer. I have been all my life and can’t see myself ever stopping whether anyone reads it or not. I hope someone enjoys some of it.
