Until you turn on the faucet
the bowl is empty
Until you read the first line
the story is empty
Here is a first line I like:
On a continent of many songs, in a country shaped like the arm of a tall guitarrista, the rain drummed down on the town of Temuco.
--from The Dreamer by Pam Munoz Ryan
Do you have a favorite first line?
