Perpetually Late Girl

Jumping on the bandwagon at the end of the ride is typical of me. I am usually the last to know, but I will not let that deter me from taking the opportunity to compose a poem in honor of April: National Poets and Writers Month.

Many celebrated with a “Poem a Day Challenge” and I got wind of this on Tuesday. I might have to do some catching up!

Taken from Robert Lee Brewer’s blog Poetic Asides:
” For today’s prompt, write an end of the line poem. Maybe the narrator of your poem is at the end of his or her line. Other possible lines that have an end: assembly lines, phone lines, power lines, rail lines, graph lines, dotted lines, waiting lines, lines of poetry, etc. “

His idle eyes cast
about the points
of the people’s heads
as they were lead
down the terminal lane
of this coordinate plane.
No slope could plot
what his mind forgot
as he put heel before
toe, at last
this row,

his spot.
