April Poem-a-Day — April 10, 2014

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

For today’s prompt, write a future poem.





That robot they sent

in place of you

as if it could replace


or distract me from you.

I knew

With each rocket they sent to destruction

that the prisoner they killed

was never you,

your heart still beating

after each spectacular crash,

an echo in my chest.

I knew

they hadn’t killed you yet.

I knew

I would breathe your breath again.

I knew.


They could never stop me knowing.


Gammelor Goodenow
