PAD Challenge Day 27

Prompt:  Take the phrase "In the (blank) of (blank)," replace the blanks with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

My first attempt - a Lune:

In the Blink of an Eye

You might miss this time
if you blink
and you don't want that.

Second attempt - playing with the alphabet form:

In the Back of Ally's House

Ally's bedroom can detect every
footprint ghost hallway.  Inside,
jingling keys land mindlessly near
opaque pitchers, quietly reaching,
softly touching under various windows,
xylophones, yarn, zippers.
