Once we get through today's poem, we'll have exactly a week of poeming left. Let's make it the best (most fun) week of the month!
For today's prompt, write an appointment poem. My first thoughts with appointments conjure up visions of doctors, dentists, and parent-teacher conferences. But there are also business meetings and romantic dates. For the most part, people are very appointment-centric, because it gives people a reason and opportunity to come together (kind of like my annual appointment to poem daily on this site).
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at an Appointment Poem:
it was made the moment
my eyes opened & the light
cut past my eyelashes
& i've been processing ever
after except for the few times
i could have met you
& each time we did there
was no joy nor any pain
only ever the dark
