Poem#21 – Keepsake

Catching up with April’s Poem-a-Day posts, yesterday’s prompt is from poet Christoper Luna:

Go the website of your favorite poet. Copy the first line in their most recent post, and use it as the first line in your poem.

I chose one of my favorite writer/poets Sandra Cisneros, who’s latest post deals with grief and hope.

**********************


What to do with this grief today?

Bury the thorny knots beneath the ribs
until there is room for nothing else


turn the blinds, lock the doors
trash every song that made you feel


burn every shred of evidence
life was once worth living


no need
to hand over your keys to the house
or to the heart


the locks
have already been changed.
