Empty Bowl

Day 28 PAD Challenge. Prompt: "World without something else--a person, place, or thing."

the empty bowl, already scraped
clean of the few grains that were

left, the sheen of the groats, the
oats, a dampness on the crockery,

and how am to live without you by my side,
arms and belly empty, a

scarecrow scratching at the
windowpane, counting the bowls

stacked upon the dresser?
