There Is Nothing but a Memory ~ with audio

 

There Is Nothing but a Memory

There is nothing to the reports of my early –
or not-so-early – demise.

There is nothing I would like more
than for that to not be true.

There is nothing to be done,
when all is said and done.

There is nothing to see here.

There is nothing more to say,
except that there is nothing.

This is my response to Day 22 at napowrimo.net,
which asks us to write a poem that uses repetition.

  1. I think you need to add the audio! I read this, then went back and read it aloud–the rhythm of the repeated word created that effect of turning the word meaningless by the end of the poem, by making it, indeed “nothing.”
