NaPoWriMo – National Poetry Writing Month
Day 18 of the poetry challenge finds me in a strange place. The following creation is a little weird, but so what. So am I. So there. Read this one backwards and forwards for varied inflections and meaning. Poetry for your battered soul. One Love.
talking through finger print stained glass
lines of coke
charred chemistry book abandoned in squatters building
one parent home
loss of wages
baby bib with dried crusted carrot puree
toys framing white carpet
one fish two fish red fish blue fish
normal wailing in the afternoon
let’s go for a ride with mommy
deep deep down into the cold dark sea
family plot is water based
smith and wesson invitational
no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
not at this time
greatness is evident, but…
success just on the outskirts of reality

Nothing wrong with experimentation. I think this poetry challenge is perfect for that. I like it forwards and especially backwards! <3
Hey Sweepy Jean! Thanks girl. I’m feeling a bit dark these days and I’m allowing it to come out in the writing. Better on the page than somewhere else, right? 😉
Thanks for stopping in, my friend!
