taking myself out of the poem
This is isn’t my poem for the day. This is a revision of yesterday’s poem. I don’t usually post revisions, but the comments yesterday really helped me move this piece closer to where it wants to be. I wanted it shorter. The advice was to yank myself out of the poem by my spiky red hair. Well, it was phrased much more politely than that, but essentially that’s what I had to do. Take myself out of the poem. Imagine that. I bet there are a bunch of poems to be written that don’t have anything to do with me. Ha!
