Writing Prompt / Story Starter 36

An exercise.

Get hold of a volume of poetry, preferably an anthology rather than a single-author collection.

Turn to the Index of First Lines.

Ignoring anything obvious or well-known, scan down the first lines until something jumps out at you.

Use this as the title or first line of your story, and take it from there.
