For the next few days, I’ll be corresponding from Austin, Texas, which means Tammy will post my prompt and poem for me each morning.
For today’s prompt, write a “what if” poem. It could be a “what if” from the past, present or future. For instance, what if no one discovered electricity? (How would we do this challenge?)
Here is my attempt:
“10 minutes ago”
My car wouldn’t scare the bird to the sky.
The bird wouldn’t fly down to inspect what
remains. The corpse wouldn’t be spread across
two lanes of interstate. The driver would
not hold her breath and then cry. A possum
would not brace for impact. If it only
could have stayed far far away from the road.
