April 6th: Out of Order

Prompt: Turn on the radio/tv to any channel. Write a poem inspired by the first thing you hear.

I blinked at the sign

Money in hand

It wasn’t possible

So I took a step back

The man to my right

Frowned as I froze

My eyes wide and bright

Face pale in shock

But he couldn’t have known

The fear that I felt

When I looked at the vending machine

And its words were my own

~ Lucía Garrido
