The June prompt is: “Tell me a story”

We want your narrative poems! These narrative poems don’t have to be strictly logical (happy to receive surreal narratives as well) but we want you to take us on a journey — whether that’s a journey through your day, your past, your imagined life, or the tale of another, bring us along.
