2010 April PAD Challenge: Day 25

We’re getting down to the final days of the challenge. This is the point in the race where you can see the finish line; so dig deep and finish with a sprint. We’re nearly there.


For today’s prompt, write a poem inspired by a song. Be sure to include the song and artist (if known) with your poem, so that we can all make our own mix CDs to write poetry.

Here’s my attempt:

“All nighters”

“We like driving on a Saturday night.” -Pulp “Joyriders”

We like working on a Saturday night

making new spreadsheet columns on the right–

something about money and bottom lines;

if we’re making money, we can sleep fine–

but we never make enough money

to lay down our heads.

    Day 25 If I Could Fly by Joe Satriani
    I felt the rush of blood
    pulsing to my brain
    The electricity streaming to synaptic nerves
    Aurora Borealis arcs of energy fly from my finger tips
    Exploding across a neon spray of blinding light
    Threading fibers weave a skin that feels like home.
