OK, so I'm going to write 30 poems in April again for Maureen Thorson's NaPoWriMo. I'll post them here. This is my fourth (!) time doing it. First time with a newborn. zomg. Imagine me singing this part in a high-pitched quavery voice: "Aaaaah!"
My 2010 and 2011 efforts are still archived on my blog. I removed the 2012 poems in case I wanted to submit some of them to journals, and I will likely do the same thing this year, once April is over. Here's one that was published in RealPoetik.
The 30 poems in 30 days challenge is just that-- a challenge. It's a good way to feel connected to poeminess and process and one's everyday observations. It's also a good way to feel a bit crazy and vulnerable. (Because, you know, I need more of that right now.) Anyway. I'm doin' it.
Stay tuned also for a new drawing-poem collaboration by me and my brother at the Malfeez blog.
In the meantime, here is a picture of the baby to tide you over.
