For today's prompt, write a missing poem. The poem could be about a missing sock, remote control, or lunch. Of course, the poem itself could be missing. But it's also possible to craft a poem about something missing in your life, whether that's happiness, free time, or money. Plus, don't overlook the poem of missing someone from afar.

Here’s my attempt at a Missing Poem:
“Revision,” by Robert Lee Brewer
I looked on the floor,
felt around the cracks
of the couch, beneath
all the throw pillows,
and in the junk drawer,
but I can't find those
words rolling around
my head before I
fell asleep last night.
