Poetry Thursday--Preparation

The theme over at Poetry Thursday this week is "If these walls could talk..."

Rather than walls, imagine this is coming from a car door. Also, my usual disclaimer: This was originally an attempt at writing a story in seven lines of prose. For the occasion that is Poetry Thursday, I've given it some line breaks, which I'm pretty sure doesn't necessarily make it a poem.

Erased it.

Is that what they call proetry? It reads nice.

I think this is a damn fine poem, but what do I know? I'm not even convinced I'm writing poetry.

Definitely poetry! There's much more than just line breaks in there making it poetry. I like the way the various references to fingernails crop up and keep the whole piece together.
