Poetry Futures


Hard to know what my future poem might look like
however I am sure that it will contain most of the
usual characters above, plus love, and its attendant

Maybe that’s not all true, that I will use Z, other than
as a stand in sound for sleep is not likely, no offense
but poetry, most poetry, OK maybe not yours, will
leave readers sleepy enough.

If there is a poem in the future by anyone, then it will
be a poem that figured out how to wake the damned
from their rituals of convenience, a poem trained well
enough to divert wolves from barking at breast.

(This poem generated and inspired by a Poetic Asides Prompt)
