April 10 Books, Books, Books

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.

Most ironic?

The how-to books on clutter. Most of mine? Books.
