“Setting the Scene” – SoCS 1/31/15

This week’s prompt is “scene/seen.”  You’ll see my contribution of the prompt only in the title.  You may not even understand the reference; but I guess it’s only important that it’s meaningful to me.  (Yeah, I went there.  No offense.)

I also decided to try something new.  It just sort of came to me as I was writing this poem, and it practically created itself.  See if you notice.  Bonus points to the first person who figures it out.


She was 26 and
                                    I was 24:
And if things had been
                                    different,
I’d been less
                                    broken;
Was I not
                                    disappointing
Had we met under alternate
                                    circumstances
the original purpose didn’t
                                    exist:

We might have been
                              the best of friends
Or we might never
                              have met.

    Maybe we need a hint. Is it something new in the poem? Or on your blog in general?
