Shock – Your Weekly Poetry Prompt 1/21/2022

Our prompt this week is Shock.

Write a poem with a shock ending. Emily Dickinson is quoted as saying “If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only way I know it. Is there any other way?” – write a poem with that kind of ending.

As always, please share your poem in the comments and I will be happy to read it and share my thoughts.
