so great – thank you, Stephen, for this totally unexpected, purely wonderful gift!

This is yet another response poem. I suppose I should get back to writing some “non-response” poems… but in a way, all poems are a response to something… aren’t they?
This poem is a response to Blend a poem by Miriam E. on Another Wandering Soul.

Crumpled – Response poem

He found her heart
Crumpled
In a notebook
Discarded in the paper bag
Next to the windowsill

His pace quickened
Red lights going off in his head
As faltering fingers
Ran through unperturbed hair
Turning pages as he dared
His face a city of pain
She was gone

  1. Miriam,
    Thanks for the reblog! This was a blast as I really enjoy doing the “response poem” part. Looking forward to the continuation of your Blend poem and will attempt to continue a response.

    • i will probably not write a response to blend, but use ‘escapade’ as an anchor again. I am intrigued to find out how many different storylines there are to be found… 😉 you are, of course, always welcome and invited to respond! i loved (absolutely LOVED) what you did there… wonderful.

  2. Miriam,
    Ah, guess I misunderstood… I thought you were considering following her through the city to see where she would go…

    Well, I’ll wait to see what happens next, which ever way you lead on this I will attempt to follow.
