#SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 2nd – “in the corner”

In the corner of the room

In silence

Silence of the heart

Silence in the head

Head and heart

Head so sleepy

Sleepy Joe

Sleepy and hazy

Hazy day

Hazy with fog

Fog of lights

Fog when we checked

Checked in the corner

Checked in the hotel

Hotel we couldn’t book

Hotel when can we go again?

Again and again

Again in the yard

Yard and spine

Yard to measure

Measure dry ingredients

Measure of love

Love is the answer

Love is sometimes risky

Risky going out

Risky going to the bank

Bank is closed

Bank of laughter

Laughter with friends

Laughter with dry humour

Humour me

Humour taken to consider

Consider the consequence

Consequence when we don’t follow

Consequence and responsibility

Responsibility for others

Responsibility taken

Taken in the corner

Corner

Taken*

The Blitz Poem, a poetry form created by Robert Keim.

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a cliché. Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.
