April PAD Challenge — Day Thirty

April 30, 2015

Prompt: take the phrase “Bury the (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

Bury the Bones

this compound
a crushing blow

this avulsion
a pulling jerk

this spiral
a twisting grip

these bones represent
the worst parts of us

bury them
and make me whole

  1. I would’ve chosen bones to fill in the blank too.

    I love dark poetry, so I’m a fan of this one. 🙂
