Wow! It's time for that final sprint to the finish line. Only five poems left to write after today!
For today's prompt, write a response poem. Your poem could be in response to a popular poem by another poet, sure, but it could also be a response to a poem you wrote earlier this month. In fact, that's how I'm coming at this prompt today.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Write a poem every single day of the year with Robert Lee Brewer's Poem-a-Day: 365 Poetry Writing Prompts for a Year of Poeming. After sharing more than a thousand prompts and prompting thousands of poems for more than a decade, Brewer picked 365 of his favorite poetry prompts here.
Here’s my attempt at a Response Poem:
When it comes right down to it,
the actual heart of it, that is,
I suppose, actually, that I do care
if you're the best or the worst
or somewhere between when
it comes to nearly everything.
(Response poem to what I wrote on Day 8.)
