Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 220

Publish date:

Sorry for the late prompt today. Was finishing up some edits on Writer's Market all morning.

For this week's prompt, write a late poem. I know, I know--how original! But seriously, write a poem in which someone or something is late. Yeah, there are a LOT of directions to take this prompt, whether you take it there on time or not.

Here's my late poem:


he slides in under the door
and floats silently beneath
the conference table and up
into his seat (previously
empty and making only
the slightest squeak) so
that no one realizes he
was never even there
