It’s the last day of GloPoWriMo. Woohoo, I made it! Today’s prompt was to write a poem that engages with a strange and fascinating fact. It could be an odd piece of history, an unusual bit of art trivia, or something just plain weird.
This is my effort, based on one of my Dad’s favourite facts. I hope you enjoy it.
It is impossible to sneeze with your eyes open
No matter how hard you try
No matter how much you persevere
It is impossible
Just as it is impossible for you to see the world for what it is
With your eyes closed
