Lekythos (Flash 55)


When the shape of this poem fell naturally into the shape of a jar, I was intrigued to find that the lekythos was used both for oil to annoint the bride and the dead, and so it naturally supported the theme of my poem.

The assignment was to write a poem of exactly 55 words on the theme “extremely close” or “worlds apart.”  This poem reflects all three criteria.
