For today’s prompt, write an invention poem. The poem could be about inventing something that doesn't yet exist, which sounds like a lot of fun. Or you could write about an invention that already exists. Of course, you could also write about the inventor(s) and/or any other interpretation you can invent.

Here’s my attempt at an Invention Poem:
i miss the luxury of a phone booth
the texture of a card catalog
a grandfather clock counting the seconds
until my next desire inspires my pen
depositing words like ash on the page
my ashtray my crutch collecting my worry
