Don’t You Forget About Me

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Don’t You Forget About Me.”

Last year I attended a spoken word/poetry show of Debris Stevenson’s. It was amazing! She performed several spoken word pieces and there were other great performers. Her words and movements ensured that the audience would not forget about her. After the show, I wrote a poem about the event:

The audience gazed

A songbird among pigeons

Beats,raps,rhymes echoed

It thrusted its wings

It proceeded to sing

Instantly, it soared

Stunning like peafowl

Set ablaze like pheonixes

All there were amazed

Don’t You Forget About Me
