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
like the pavement it's rotting on
the banana peel
reposes in its own decay
you of what it's like to be
a real person
basking in your own aliveness
like when you lose yourself in
all the romance
it bites you * back
like the worn shoes you're wearing
the real person
reposes in their own decay
*Lyrics from "Emily" by Absent Elk
