Monday Poetry Prompt: Bottleneck


This week let’s write a bottleneck poem. There’s plenty of inspiration to be found in a bottle but sometimes it all comes at once. Maybe a traffic poem or the three stooges going through a door or maybe that delicate tapering shape will prompt something. Post what pours out in the comments below.

  1. greetings and hugs from LA thanks for the opportunity ❤

    out pour

    your breath
    easy now
    that’s good like that
    i like it when you
    tense up and move wildly
    oh see there the moon blushes
    together lets hold the dam back
    slow down some don’t give in too quickly
    in a few moments the lightning will strike
