In April, poets all over the world attempt to write a poem a day. I’m no poet, and I know it, but folks tell me I should try. What better excuse?
The output is bound to be largely amateurish, but what’s the point in writing these if I don’t show them to anyone? Plus, the challenge and all. I won’t be pushing these onto my facebook followers or promoting them here, but I’d be grateful for any comments you might have on individual poems. Am I doing anything well? Do I need to fall back on stand up comedy, or maybe stand up tragedy? More rhyme? Less angst? Would I know a meter from a sewing machine? Don’t be gentle. I have talcum.
Hey, at least I’m trying to push out of my comfort zone, right? (I wonder if that’s what Jeffrey Dahmer said?)
