I got sucked into another writing group. This one is through school. Now you can look forward to more weekly attempts at poetry prompts (you can thank me later).

I forget what this week’s prompt was, but here’s what I came up with:

In the Union Square Whole Foods
He told me about how
The director showed up late for the
film shoot. Womp Womp
He said. Then I said
I rounded for
two hours today and
it was so boring
I started to space out
and wonder what would
happen if I pull the fire
Then he laughed.
because, well,
it’s kind of funny to think
about 33 schizophrenics
and 7 nurses and 6 med students
and the residents all
trying to get in a single file line
to leave a flaming psych ward.
Then I said
Holy Shit!
And slapped him on the shoulder.
Do you realize we’re meeting
after you made a movie
and I saw patients all day?
Honey, I think we’ve made it.
