April 22: Prosaic

by allisonkujiraoka

It’s neither life nor death,

just everything in between.

I only want assurance

that you’re getting what I mean.

If necessary rearrange

the words, add punctuation

subtract the rhyme

and save some time

delete imagination.

Don’t hedge;

go for straight talk

with a dull edge:

Indulge in the prosaic.
