2010 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 16

It's a two-for-Tuesday prompt today. Here are the prompts:

  1. Write a stacking poem. The poem could be about stacking objects. Or it could be about stacking ideas, stacking the deck, stacking the odds against something happening, etc.
  2. Write an unstacking poem. Just the opposite of the first prompt. Unstack objects or tear down the obstacles stacked in your way, etc.

Here's my attempt:

"Flights to Dayton"

Forget the distance from here to there;
pay no heed to the reasons why it won't work;
ignore the impulse to never try;
listen only to the sound of your heart as you think maybe;
then, make it happen.
