Broken Home

For the month of April, to mark International Poetry Month, I’m trying to write a daily poem in response to someone else’ s prompt instead of  writing about whatever wanders into my head that day.  It’s hard, weird, and interesting, all at once.  The prompts I’m using are posted by Robert Brewer on his inspiring blog, Poetic Asides.  Today’s prompt: write a broke poem.

I let everything in our house
Stay broken for you.

I left everything
In our house
Broken
For you

Now that you’re gone,
Slowly,
Like springtime arrives this year,
Broken latches,
Broken railings,
Broken chairs,
Are cured.
I fix them
Then
Make dinner
Make a poem
Make a home.
