No Connection

Poetic Asides – Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 18 prompt:

Today's prompt is to take a line of my choosing and incorporate it into your poem in some way. You can use the line as the title of your poem, as the last line, as the first line, or even drop it somewhere in the middle--but you must use the line somewhere. And a special note to you "rule benders": No, you cannot break up the line into individual words or phrases. The whole line must be used, though you can definitely insert a line break or two if you wish.

So, what's the line anyway? It is: There is no connection.

No connection to what? And who is speaking? And in what context? These are questions you should ponder before tackling this prompt.


Crossed Words

seven tiles
on the rack
fingered and shuffled
as my mind works
to find a place
on the board
squares of red,
pink, green, blue
bonus points
on my mind
too many consonants
not enough vowels
between the words
phone and develop
needle and veto
there is no connection
for the letters
I have drawn
hate to pass and
lose my chance
at triple word score
but there really is
no other choice
