Monsters (NaPoWriMo Day 27)

After CG

I saw you in a dream last night.
I was lighting a photo shoot.
An industrial location.
Must’ve been a hundred people
coming through, asking questions,
commenting on the process.

You asked if I wanted to dance.

The two nights before I had snakes
in my dreams. But you weren’t in those.
Just the snakes…


Poetic Asides’ Day 27 prompt was to write a monster poem. This one appeared almost verbatim in an email. Found poems are great, aren’t they?

  1. Hi, I read a few of your great poems just now. Strangely enough, this is the one that hit me most. Simple and less obviously “poetic”, I really enjoyed this one!
