National Poetry Month – Day 29: Two Poems

Today you get two poems, because I cannot count how many days there are in April and ended up with 31 prompts. So, the two prompts are steely gaze and dearth of toilet paper. The poems forms are septolet and haiku.

Steely Gaze

Staring
in disapproval
judgement with no words

Wilting
under cold eyes
while knowing
failure

Dearth of Toilet Paper

empty shelves—hopeless
despair echoing the flush
the leaves are calling
