PAD Challenge – Day 13

Today’s Poetic Asides prompt calls for a Last _____ poem. I went the micro route today, with these three:


Last piece of pie —

a year ago I would’ve

left it for you.


Last time

I got butterflies.

Today, only heartburn.


Last spring

I still remembered

the sound of her laugh.


This is Not A Literary Journal suggests playing with repetition in a list poem, and the NaPoWriMo challenge is a fun one that I plan to try on a day when I have a little more time: write a poem inspired by fortune cookies. It reminded me of humorous Lines For The Fortune Cookies by Frank O’Hara.
