NaPoWriMo : Day 8
Poetry Prompt from NaPoWriMo: Today, I’d like to challenge you to read a few of the poems from Spoon River Anthology, and then write your own poem in the form of a monologue delivered by someone who is dead.
As soon as I read this prompt, I thought: “Hey. I’ve already done that — kinda.” When I was writing stories for my second book, The Knot at the End of the Rope and Other Short Stories, I wrote a series of post-apocalyptic poems that may be found by an explorer in a desolate world. I posted that poem here: NaPoWriMo : Day 8 (Prologue)
Now here is today’s poem:
I will be posting my poems here: linesbyleon.com/national-poetry-writing-month/ I hope you will drop by!
