Poefusion Friday 5


Michelle at Poefusion Friday 5 offers these words for prompt:
doctor * roll of film * stairwell * telephone * secret
I found these words more conducive to a short story than poetry! What do you find?


<>
the escape stairwell echoed
clatter made by a roll of film
unwinding down the steps

a scrubs clad doctor slipped
through the morgue's swinging door
into a nearby telephone stand

dialed a familiar number
whispered, 'We're safe ~
our secret has seen the light.'

thanks for your visit.

that secret should come out in a short story or novel, i think. this has enough mystery to pull you right in and make you want more. thanks for sharing. have a nice weekend.

A nice take on the prompt; your poem is intriguing:)

That was surreal! The images of film and phone boxes took this to another time for me. Great stuff.

Sue,
Very clever. Dr. McDreamy saved by a stairwell exposure. Next time I'll record his trysts with my digital. ;)
Well done my lady.

I know what you mean about the words, but you managed to create a poem. I love the opening sounds of the roll of film clattering. Great mystery.
