For today's prompt, I want you to title your poems "Never (blank)" with you filling in the blank with a word or phrase. Then, write a poem based off your title, which could be "Never look both ways when crossing the street" or "Never blush in public" or "Never ever" or "Never write a poem with the word never in the title." You get the idea, right?

Never on Sundays

Never rest.
Never free.
Never sacrifice, never
bask.
Hush.

Keep it all.
Keep it real.

no calm, no comfort,
no quarter
kept
close to heart, cherished:

never equal, real to abstract,
hurt to pain.

Kepp the chimera,
keep
vision and need.
