Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is: Write a poem that takes the form of the opening scene of the movie of your life.
The camera zooms in on a girl,
a banker’s lamp lights her,
as she hunches over a black Remington typewriter,
stabbing the keys with furious fingers,
but sometimes they linger, instead,
when she drops her head.
The camera zooms out of the stage,
and a light illuminates she typed a blank page.
Sometimes there are just no words,
to describe what hurts.
