My day 22 poem for National Poetry Writing Month doesn’t use the prompt on Napowrimo.net (because I’m not interested in figuring out how to write a georgic right now)—but still sticks with the Earth Day theme (sort of)…
We’re really not in Kansas anymore…
Is the ‘no place like home’
we’ve been dreaming about?
The place we’ve been longing for
for so long?
What is it we imagine we’re doing?
The earth’s capacity to take what we insist on giving
is a stubborn streak the likes of which we have not seen—
but just you wait…
