April 25 ’10: Some Days

April 25, 2010 § 1 Comment

Keep an ear out for the first sentence (or even word) that is said to you after you read this prompt. (Poetic license: If the first few words are exceptionally boring, wait for the first uncommon or peculiar one.) Take that word/sentence — it could be “mango” or “exemplar” or “have you ever been to this Ethiopian restaurant?” — and build a poem around it. Maybe you have deep thoughts on mangoes or a narrative of heartbreak and spicy injera from the restaurant mentioned. Trust in fate.

When I read ReadWritePoem’s prompt, I was already in silence and – trusting in fate – decided to use it as my word.

Some Days

sunday/some days 
voices mellowed by airwaves
the brush of warm thighs
revealed skin
inky exhalations
wet noses
rustling fans
white coffee
hasty good-byes
