For this week's prompt, let's write a desire poem. People (and animals) find they desire many things: food, recognition, love, and many more possibilities. Every week, for instance, I desire a finished poem. Poem your desires this week.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Desire Poem:
“pants,” by Robert Lee Brewer
someone dismissed the choir
and threw water on the fire
where there used to be desire
but now only sits a liar
