In their dreams 

they sleep with the moon

          by Mary Oliver from Death at Wind River

Subquishable wants to know where did you go; your background and foreground; lay of the line. Keep it personal, submittable, short and divine, but the words aren’t right because some have already been taken, so touché to cliche! Use them anyway. If structure is not your master, remember Cummings put a letter anywhere. When punctuation creeps into the fray, there is no rule that wants to stay. Hang those commas in the air; see them everywhere. Use the Dickinson dash without remorse. Watch out for song and rhyme because it just might make a poem subquishable.


dVerse prompt on prosery combined with a line from Mary Oliver.  This prose poem is definitely subquishable.
