April PAD 19: 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!
