For today’s prompt, I want you to write a poem involving miscommunication. It can be miscommunication between two people or misinterpretation of some sort. I will leave it up to you guys to deal with it however you want.
Here is my attempt for the day:
“If Shakespeare taught us anything, it’s that it doesn’t take much to flip a picture upside down”
“Can you smash the yellow jacket
for me,” she asks. He says, “What’s wrong
with your birthday present?
I saved to buy it after you
said you wanted it.” He pushes
her off him. Just seconds ago,
they were talking about the fools
who think they’re rushing things. “Really?
You’re an idiot,” she says, “I
was just asking a question.” He
clenches his fists and says, “And now
you’re calling me names, too.” “Listen:
I wasn’t talking about my
yellow jacket but that bee which,
like our happy moment, has now
wandered off never to return.”
