It's time for another poem-a-day challenge. It's free and anyone can jump in, play, and poem along (guidelines here). Let's get started; no sleep 'til December!
For today’s prompt, write an enter poem. We're entering a new challenge, a new month, a new poem, a new state of mind, a new candy hangover, etc. Maybe your poem enters a haunted house or enters into a conversation. Take enter where you wish.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at an Enter Poem:
we enter the dream
in the middle of a dinner party
people packed provocatively piecemeal
around the table and the meal
itself indistinct and conversation incoherent
or maybe it's me starting at somebody
talking about something but the one thing
i'm thinking about is
where are my children and what
am i doing here when i know i hate
small talk and strangers and stranger still
i see upon the window sill
a raven quoting nevermore
forever more and then the clock chimes
three times to find me waking on the floor
