Nov 20 09: And then we were none
November 20, 2009 § 2 Comments
Today’s Poetic Asides prompt is as open-ended as you can get: “take the phrase “And then (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make that the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.”
It’s a goddamn revolving door, the one
that guards the passage to my heart. The
gilded signs we painted on its frame
retain their dusky gleam, and I forget to paint.
They tattoo the house and announce
that we were here. That we were here.
Inside this almost vacant home, there is
peace. You only disturb me in my dreams.
