something rusty for “the red poems”
How could it have been more than a week since I wrote a poem? Isn’t “the red poems” a poem-a-day challenge? Who takes a week off during a poem-a-day challenge? Ugh.
Well, I have a couple excuses. One is that I was working on my manuscript. The other is that I had my head up my a$$. One of them is a good excuse; the other is just pathetic.
Whatever the reason, it takes a while to get things moving again, so this first one back at the series is a little rusty. So maybe they all won’t make the final cut, whatever that means. I’m writing them to see what they’ve got in them. To quote Jill when I walked away from a revealing poem last time we met: “write through it and see what happens.”
Hopefully, there’ll be more poems to come in short order. I’ve been writing notes in my journal for a couple weeks, but I still don’t feel quite myself when I’m not writing actual poems.
