october’s big tent poetry wordle
OK. So it could be that I am also writing for the 7-day poetry gong at Big Tent Poetry. Or it could be that I am coming down with another cold (which is karmic punishment because recently I was grumbling about other people always being sick). Or it could be that I am hormonal. But, whatever the reason, the wordle this month kicked my butt. The twelve words were purple, kiss, gourd, hook, drooping, staircase, muddy, bitter, doll, glossy, extract and pluck.
Anyway, here’s my attempt. Make sure to check out what dozens of others have written with these same words. Their posts are already up. Mine is a little late to the party!
I had to accomplish this one by writing a sentence or two containing each word. I noticed a menacing quality to them and tried to arrange them so a narrative emerges ever so slightly. Of course, if I revise this piece, I’ll take out the things that aren’t a part of that narrative, but for now they stay so I can say I used all the words!!
