Do You See?
>This was the Day 6 prompt for April PAD: “For today’s poem, I want you to write a poem about something missing. It can be about an actual physical object or something you just can’t put your finger on (like “love” or “the spirit of Christmas” or something).” See at: April PAD Challenge: Day 6
Moth balls rolling off a coat
I barely used last winter
Magazines he’d throw, I’d save
For garden instructions on better tomatoes
Undoing gossamer cobweb from the corners
Before life is installed back in
That unlived living room, on the yet-to-be cluttered
Dresser. This indeed was like courting
Emptiness, he said, before I came back home.
