(Hour 02) 11.30-12.30am. VISUAL PROMPT, Man looking round white edge

L-plate hitch-hiker

not sure what
Ryan thinks he’ll do
now he’s clinging —
to the edge of
one of those things —

while it might’ve seemed
an excellent idea
inside his scattergun brain
we never discussed —
now — this moment

as white metal
— rises —
with him hanging on
& no obvious way inside 

i tell the little ones
to turn away
they don’t —
understandably

he should let go now
before he’s too high
— to fall

  1. I had vivid images when reading the phrases
    -“it might’ve seemed/ an excellet idea/ inside his scattergun brain”
    -“white metal /— rises — / with him hanging on”
    and then I wonder about the little ones.
    I am not sure of the full story, yet I realize not all poems have stories. The images may be exactly what you are seeking to communicate.
