Afternoon Poem, September 24, 2015

Write a poem

Make something out of nothing

Pull thought and emotion

Right out of thin air

And put it all in form.


Fix it so it flows and evokes

And raises memory and desire.


Key it in quickly

And click the blue button

Without looking back

Or the gift will vanish into the air

That you pulled it from.


Quick, describe some detail.

It will remind a thousand

Of days long ago

And break someone’s heart

Three thousand miles away
