Beyond All Ken

Tonight’s poem comes from the following IWWG (International Women’s Writing Guild) prompt:

The dead know everything.

For this week’s writing exercise, begin there. Or end there: write toward it. Or insert this breathtaking phrase in the middle of your piece (prose or verse).

 

 

Ken

 

the dead know everything

they understand you are
crazy now
rage on the horizon
and you cannot find
your socks

the dead need nothing
not even fire
to ward off the hollowing
that comes when away 
from you

they only ask not to be forgotten
