NaPoWriMo 2011 - # 16

# 16

do not agitate

This poem has been sitting in my hard-disk for some time until I unearthed it today. It was a draft written for a poetry prompt from AppleHouse Poetry.

After some major revisions, here it is..


why do coat hangers always
entangle themselves,
do they wrestle
when one one is looking?
why is it
one side of a pair of socks
is always missing,
when you need them
in a hurry?

is it true
that the light
i saw in the sky
late last night
was really a UFO?
is there really a yeti?

why do i bother
with all these mysteries
when every morning
that the bus
i am going to catch
is always ahead
of me?
