NaPoWriMo : Day 8 (Prologue)

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.

So, while I craft my next poem in the series, based on today’s prompt, please allow me to post my first poem that started it all. Stay tuned.

I will be posting my poems here: linesbyleon.com/national-poetry-writing-month/ I hope you will drop by!
