This week, for the Meet The Bar Challenge at dVerse Poets, Laura wants us to acknowledge the year’s end by using some closing lines of previous poems.

Because it’s December 1st, I’ve used closing lines from whatever poems I posted on the 1st day (or thereabouts) for the past 12 months…



Don’t even ask about Deadcember,
the promise of impending Winter.

He blames it on Wal-Mart:
she starts the car and is gone.

Outside becomes inside.

He owns the planet.
He feels the empty,
forgets his name.
He goes back to sleep. Waits.

Nobody stood in solidarity
or cared that he was naked.
Thank God.

  1. Loved this crazy prompt of Laura’s. Your meld is brilliant, and spot on tone for you my friend — dug it brother… 👍🏼✌🏼❤️

  2. It so fascinates me how these random lines can form such an intriguing image and story! Totally a fun “romp”.

  3. I love this, it gives fun vibes and reminds me of a plant that belonged to my ex he purchased from Wal-Mart. I took while he was at work after we broke up and I refused to give it back.

    Anywho, lovely poem ❤
