Penance: February 28, 2011 - Meditations on a Rotting Banana Peel

Prompt: Use a lyric from a song in a poem.

Source: We just did this in my creative writing class.

Response: Meditations on a Rotting Banana Peel

Almost black
like the pavement it's rotting on
the banana peel
reposes in its own decay
Almost reminding
you of what it's like to be
a real person
basking in your own aliveness
Almost real
like when you lose yourself in
all the romance
it bites you
* back


Almost gone
like the worn shoes you're wearing
the real person
reposes in their own decay

*Lyrics from "Emily" by Absent Elk
