Bells toll first, but the message says away.
Sounds of a bicycle join in the fray.
The whirring machinery copies one by one.
Vibrations signal a message unknown.
Blinking lights flash clamoring for attention.
Voices call out, please answer the question.
A cacophony of these electronic toys
simply becomes invisible white noise.
For this week’s prompt, write a poem about something in the room (or space) you’re sitting. The poem could be about a physical object in the room (or space). It could be a remembered or imagined event. If you’re outside, then you’ve got plenty of possibilities. However, I imagine a poem about a poet in a white room with a laptop (and nothing else) could be equally interesting. – Robert Lee Brewer
