April PAD 19: Rite Now

RITE NOW

The invoice of my life
leaves my hand as it is served
over the front lines

of your spiral bound calendar,
the army of paper clips,
semi-automatic stapler,
and lowered HP screen.

It deserves more than a glance,
sigh, and rejection.

Prompt: Write a life event poem.
Poetic Asides Community


****
I had to draw from fiction to write this poem. The life events happening in my non-fiction right now are too hard to write about. There are some really good poems on the Poetic Asides blog that I have been skimming through. Have a look!

  1. I like that you picked up on the imagery. Since this is a draft, I think I will flesh out those ideas a little more when I have more time. Thanks for stopping by to have a read and staying long enough to follow!
