Another poem using just the first of Kelli Russell Agodon's 30 prompts

The spectre of repatriation

Twenty-one cracks in the teacup
trace a ship, a suitcase; hint

at missing paperwork on the dock,
reprieve, the nick of time,

salvation on the dot
of eleven minutes to nine.

[prompt-words: cracks, trace, paperwork, suitcase, teacup, dot, dock, ship, time, twenty-one]
