PAD 20

note to quitters

one birth is enough

for one lifetime,

anvil head breaking

through, shoulders

wedged, feet pushing

off the ribcage, mouth

full of mama, I do

not need to be born

again to feel clean, I

plan to go out as

dirty as I came in.


For today's prompt, I want you to write a poem of rebirth. There are many different types of rebirth available, including the changing of the seasons, the beginning of the day, religious or spiritual rebirth, a reconfirmation of good in people, re-learning how to love, etc. So think on it a bit, and create a stellar rebirth poem.

great line re: coming in and going out dirty.
Also, the person who came up with "quitters" is a genius.
