For today’s prompt, write a wire poem. A wire poem could be about something that needs wires–like maybe a robot, TV, or automobile. But birds huddle on telephone wires, people wire money to each other, and kids can get wired off of too much candy and/or caffeine. In fact, I’m surprised I haven’t written more wired poems over the years.
Here’s my attempt at a Wire poem:
When I was young, I didn’t marvel at how electricity
traveled through wires as much as I wondered how
everything everyone used all the time could work
at the same time connected by the same wires
as if they were as constant as the sun or moon.
He loves finding connections, whether it’s through power lines or lines of thought.
