April 3, 2011 - The Wind

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

Original Airdate: February 28, 2011


Last night the wind

Up and blew us out

Far out to sea.

All night we crashed against the cliffs

Up against the black merciless crags.

This morning the wind

Up and breathed its last

All over our bodies.

All morning we lay facedown in the sands

My body’s broken yours is bent
by grit.

Tonight the wind will

Up and blow life in us

Deep in our lung.

All night we will lie still as stones

Until the wind blows us out again.
