Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 223

Publish date:

For this week's prompt, take the phrase "Entertain (blank)," replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include "Entertain the Thought," "Entertain the World," "Entertain Guests," and whatever other creative ideas everyone creates. I'm sure it'll be "entertaining."

Here's my attempt:

"Entertain Mint"

I wish it always left a fresh aftertaste,
this fumbling with words, this attempt
at connecting. I wish it would lead me
to fame and fortune, but often, I try
producing entertain mints to find my
readers wondering "entertain meant?"
