Today’s prompt is meta or incestuous, whichever scares you the most. This poem (perhaps) came from one of my prompts (or rather a challenge) back in June, and now the prompt is title your poem “Obligatory ____ Poem” and use the following six words from Sarah’s poem: name, living, head, hiss, kindling, mirror.
