Poem: "Storyboard"

A special welcome to new prompter zyngasvryka! (If you have not yet read her ongoing novel Eclipse Court, I highly recommend that you go check it out.)

So here is the second freebie poem of the day, "Storyboard," inspired by a prompt from moosl.


Storyboard



They are all here somewhere:
the hero
the pirate
the three witches
the urchins
the apparition
the genius
the wanderers
the innkeeper
the king

even the dancing bear and the bird man.

Instant epic, just add water –
an ocean or two should do.

The muse pastes their little figures
on the computer screen while I write,
rearranging them as necessary
until the story unfolds in compelling sequence.

When I try to sleep,
she pastes them on the inside of my eyelids
instead.
