NaPoWriMo #4 – National Poetry Writing Month
For this “poem” I will look around my home office and write down the first words that come to my mind when focusing on certain objects. Will it be lyrical? You be the judge.
An iPod shuffles
a telephone rings
photographs bring memories of elusive things
degree in a frame
books, but no fame
only a curly haired writer
with two last names
vitamin infused water
with a purplish hue
a dentyne ice gum container
with none left to chew
rain doing donuts on a dingy window pane
abandoned paints and brushes
grace my artsy domain
overflowing waste basket
threatens to spill
my printer is home to unopened bills
who has time to budget, balance books and attend?
i’m just a preoccupied wordy child
with only one friend
