Poem#3 – Untitled

For today’s poem, I used the prompt provided by Kirsty Logan, over at Shanna Germain’s  Not Without Poetry challenge. Shanna has provided a wonderful forum for us to challenge ourselves as poets during the month of April, by writing, and posting  a poem a day. It’s also a great way to meet fellow poets, and read some really cool work.

Untitled

 

The truth is

irrelevant.

 

talking heads voicing opinions

of no consequence,

 

whatsoever.

 

We listen in rapt silence

to the white noise all around us

one hundred inch plasma

on every wall

 

At the airport,

an entire store

dedicated to the madness

 

The lobby is crowded

people streaming in from

the bitter cold

 

They said check your courage here.

 

We shucked our values

our beliefs

 

they were confiscated at

security

 

Their slant is evident.

but only if we open

our eyes.

  1. I love where you go with this. I totally didn’t believe it was possible to work with those words or the photograph. But your poem is rich in imagery and insightful. Thanks.

  2. Thank you, Lani Jo. When I first saw the prompt, I said the same thing. I had no idea where the poem was going at first, but I’m glad it kinda worked out, though. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Goodness, I love this one too! Thanks for writing and sharing all this. 🙂

  4. Thank you Emerald, good to see you. This month is wearing me out (in a good way), and it’s only day 6!
