stinkers

January 8, 2010

The good news is I’m trying to write again. The bad news is I’m actually doing it.

What a struggle! And what stinkers I’m putting out! Fortunately, the RWP Poetry Mini-Challenges (here’s a link to the current one) encourage all sorts of poems to come into the world, even the stinkers (or maybe especially the stinkers). The challenge is to write six poems in six days on the theme of “starting over.”

I have two done so far, and both go downhill quickly after their titles. There’s one about Alice in Wonderland on reality TV (not for those offended by a foul-mouthed narrator — not me! Alice is the potty mouth!) and there’s one about Elvis.
