Sammi Cox Weekend Writing Prompt #297


By Amelia Michelle Nicol


The places a key could hide

the doorways we’re used to

These sunlit contingent corners of frames

dropping something in the dark or fumbling

for the right shape, these fitting

Weights and counter-intuitive measures

maps left in boxes labeled for modem

symbols used any way and never broken

anything, anytime fitting or only these

The banging and beating hammers

stickers and bridal tape

composing measures of rhythm

to signatures hidden lines
