Before we get into this week’s prompt, I just want to make you aware of all the fun stuff happening at Poetic Asides. Click here to read about it all. Challenges, chapbooks, and more!
For today’s prompt, write a poem about something you (or someone or something else) are dreading. An example would be writing a poem about an impending visit to the dentist or an upcoming test. Or it could even be the specter of bad traveling conditions for the holidays.
Here’s my attempt:
“To grandmother’s house”
Snow-covered guardrails and tracks spiraling
into the median from a two-lane Interstate
to a minivan that’s no longer going anywhere.
