Day Fourteen


2427183Prompt from

Today’s prompt (optional, as always) is a little something I’m calling “Twenty Questions.” The idea is to write a poem in which every sentence, except for the last one, is in the form of a question. That’s it! It can be as long or short as you like. The questions can be deep and philosophical (‘what is the meaning of life?’) or routine and practical (‘are you going to eat that?’). Or both!

I went with the literal, and made it 20 questions…



Twenty Questions

What are you up to today?

Why do you want to know?

What’s your problem?

What do you care?

How can we fix this?

Do you really want to know?

What do you think?

Do you have any idea how much you hurt me every day?

Can you explain?

How can you not see the things you do, the things you don’t do?

How can you expect me to understand if you won’t tell me?

Is it even worth it?

Is anything?

Should we just say goodbye?

Shouldn’t we at least try?

What if we saw someone?


How else can we figure things out?

When do you want to start?

Is today good for you?
