11.17 Daily Poem Challenge #29

I am using the daily prompts provided on Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides blog on writersdigest.com


THE DANGER OF POWERFUL EXPERIENCES IS IN THINKING YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE HAVING THEM

It happened immediately
when I paid fifteen dollars
for one line of poetry;
Miss, do all poets have crazy hair and big black boots?

There I was; wearing the shoes
pushing back the crazy strands
and reading all my wars
laid away in the pages of her book.

Lines 4 & 7-8 are from Sarah Kay’s Mrs. Ribiero and My Wars Are Laid Away in Books by Emily Dickinson
