National Poetry Writing Month 2019 Day #3 (pt. 1)

Here I use the prompt provided by poet (and bookstore owner) Chris Jarmick on his blog, POETRYisEVERYTHING.

This prompt involves threes. This is what I did with that:

Cubes and cubits and curettage
the list of possibilities
is merely possible

Certainty comes only after
every avenue is exhausted
and you have to admit what should have been obvious from the beginning

Call it a loan
an unrecoupable expense
a deduction that resists all attempts at categorisation

(When you get to the last one, you should stop)
