NaPoWriMo 2022 day 13

Oh here you are, there's nothing left to say 
You're not supposed to be that way
—- The Goo Goo Dolls


Wreckage

Bury it in the deepest sea.
Let it settle among the ruins,

sleep in clouds of seaweed.
Let it swim through portholes,

through barnacled gears
& crab eaten cloth.

Let it disappear
into octopus arms while you

surf the turquoise & reach
for the lighthouse beam.



Again, I’ve combined two prompts. With thanks to artist John Phandal Law and Paul Brooks of The Wombwell Rainbow. Thanks, also, to poet Kelli Russell Agodon and her list of poetry prompts you can find here. I used #12: “Turn on the radio to any channel. Write a poem inspired by the first thing you hear (lyrics to a song, a commercial, etc.)”
