dispersing & reflecting light through poetry

NaPoWriMo Day 13

Day 13 [10:50-11:01 pm]
I started a list poem this morning based on the prompt from Writer’s Digest, but it became more complicated than what I want to deal with this late in the day. So I took a line from my “bits & pieces” file and scribbled something together. I’ll finish the other tomorrow.

The New Work Ethic,
or The Death of Common Sense

I yank out my beard
one whisker at a time,
while shouting obscenities
without vowels.

It only clarifies my sanity,
because only a blind man
can’t hear the train coming
or taste the stench of sloth.
