National Poetry Writing Month 2017, Day 21

My day 21 poem for National Poetry Writing Month uses the prompt from Napowrimo.net—to write a poem that ‘incorporates overheard speech.’ I actually have written several such poems lately—including my Day 20 poem (which used my dropbox list of recent files as the source for the title), my Day 18 poem (which incorporated an invented word from 1989 or 1990), and another poem written three days ago that ends with a quote from Pulp Fiction. My title for this poem came from a post I saw on tumblr… Continue reading “National Poetry Writing Month 2017, Day 21”

National Poetry Writing Month 2017, Day 18

My day 18 poem for National Poetry Writing Month uses the prompt from Napowrimo.net—to write a poem incorporating neologisms, or made-up words. Having recently done that in a couple of poems, I wasn’t feeling particularly enthusiastic about this one—but I dug out a couple from years back (the oldest dating back to 1989 or 1990), and went from there… Continue reading “National Poetry Writing Month 2017, Day 18”

National Poetry Writing Month 2017, Day 17

My day 17 poem for National Poetry Writing Month uses the prompt from Napowrimo.net—to write a nocturne.
