Writing 201 Day 3: Skin. Prose Poem. Internal Rhyme


When sweet and stiff
I felt young and strong
Living hollow, there was no tomorrow

When red or not fed
I cared for dearth and death
Noticing as ever, there was no forever

When tickled and wrinkled
I wanted no dime but time
Doing worthier than doing better

When loose and smooth
I saw gravity’s beat but no defeat
I am no timeless skin, but no worthless life

I joined Writing 201: Poetry.

Today’s assignment: Theme (skin), the simple form (prose poem), and subtle-yet-effective device (internal rhyme).
