I’m building my lucky charm because I lost all my wisdom
The truman show came knocking
Three gleefull medicine men with April fools jokes
Nitrous Oxide turns to Morphine turns to Hydrocodone
Turn to my right and see my intra venus drip
Violently accommodating, with a grin
“stop writing poetry about drugs!”
To be quite honest the trip was nothing but amnesia
Lost life, 56 minutes
Nothing to much else
At least they let me take home the makings of a lucky charm
Sell the idea of a cool breeze,
the idea of a foreign friend,
the idea of a tongue
to scoop what ails you
out of the lake
of your desolation.
Snow sifts the dust to the ground,
coddles the pear blossoms.
Below, a fish turns a fin,
and by the mound at your door
an inquiring eye regards you
as you listen to the colony

Here’s a website that will host a new prompt every day (possibly for found poetry exercises) for National Poetry Month. I’ll post others as I find them!
