face, and suburb
Blood on the moon
While you're at home
Fear on your face
Blood on his knife
You're home alone
Death on his face
Blood on the floor
His, in your house
Shot in his face
Above: Various houses I've visited. The one on the lower left is Hemmingway's backyard study in Key West, Florida. Next on the right is a monastery high up in the hills of Greece. I've been in both of these.

- Grapling's instructions were to "please write a new poem for this prompt using at least 3 of the list words (or reasonable variants), post it to your own site, and link to that specific poem (not just your blog)."
- His resource for this prompt was "the list from the (translated) poems of Pablo Neruda, specifically, from the bilingual edition Pablo Neruda - Selected Poems (Houghton Mifflin, 1970)."
- I used this one: "from "I'm Explaining a Few Things", page 151 (PoemHunter.com again): suburb, face, house, blood." I took the liberty to use the word Home instead of House where I felt it to be more appropriate for my poem.
