Complete Blank

I’ve drawn a complete blank / see it’s right there in invisible ink
a prank from my younger days

okay / but seriously

the blank page taunts me / is daunting
completely unlike a kindergartner in a white sheet
dressed for Halloween as a ghost
haunting me

they’re not scary
maybe they’re funny / or better yet cute
but they’re not scary

that’s the trick
to the treat of conquering
the blank page

This poem was written to the “Complete (blank)” prompt at Poetic Asides.
