Prompt from Poetry SuperHighway
April 10, 2022: Poetry Writing Prompt – Elizbeth Marchitti
Write about your knick-knacks, your chatchkes, your Dollar Store finds. Explain why you can’t quit buying them, and what you think your heirs will do with them when you die.
If you write a poem from this prompt, post it as a comment underneath the prompt in the Poetry Super Highway Facebook Group. #napowrimo #poetry
Books, Books, Books
In the kitchen. Living room. Bedroom.
By my bed, in the night tables, on two bookshelves.
In boxes along the floor. In my study, outside
my study. And all the e-ones on my Kindle.
Always buying the next best book, but before
it arrives, another one’s in the cart somewhere.
They’ll build a book table, or a chair, arms
resting on poetry books, cookbooks, art books
and history books. Health books, fiction books,
how-to-do something or other books.
The how-to books on clutter. Most of mine? Books.
