For today's prompt, write a top poem. Of course, there is a spinning top, the big top, top of the world, and many other top possibilities. Your poem can mention a top of your choosing or list out your top choices for something (like "top vacation destinations"). Or write a poem using only whatever is top of mind.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Top Poem:
“topsy-turvy,” by Robert Lee Brewer
sometimes i feel a bit
outside myself above
myself beside myself
beneath myself or
almost somebody else
looking into myself
and wondering why
or if i could be some-
body else who's not
myself but then it
passes right through
myself and i begin
to re-know myself.
