2011 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 15

Author:
Publish date:

I admit I'm a bit predictable at times. For instance, I always include the following Two for Tuesday prompt during April and November PAD Challenges.

For today's prompt, you have two options:

  1. Write a love poem.
  2. Write an anti-love poem.

Here's my attempt:

"no poems"

there are no poems
hiding between us,
no things we just now
remember to say,
but that doesn't mean
we don't have poems
left to find on new
paths in old forests
and even if then,
we have so many
revisions to make
late into the night
like our second kiss
just after our first.
