2022 NaPoWriMo – Day 14 (Opening Scene)

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.
