a list poem for new years eve and big tent poetry
REMOVED FOR EDITING.
I am waiting for my son’s friend to arrive for a playdate, and so I asked the kids for a quiet hour for me to do some writing before we entertain. I sat down with this week’s prompt for Big Tent Poetry (my own). It’s not a snarky list, as the prompt suggests, but I hope the abundance is a decent enough irony to the seriousness of the final line. Go see what other list poems circus-goers wrote this week!
P.S. I got this out in about 10 minutes. Don’t tell the kids. I’m going to goof off for the rest of my hour.
