Confession Tuesday- 30 Poems-30 Days Edition
Hear I am once again at the confessional. It's been almost 2 regular season Giant's games, 2 Baumgarner homers, 4 day of April and 4 poems, one W2W mentee skpye conference chat, The start of module 4, 7 more days of an embarrassing president, and a week since my last confession.
Reader, I'm 4 days into April and I'm doing it! Four poems, 4 days! Tonight, I worked late to finish but alas I am ready for tomorrow. I confess today I wrote without a prompt. Some days I want a prompt and some days I am just resistant to any prompt I find. I don't know why, just is.
I confess that I am elated that Kansas City approved a bond issue for a new animal shelter tonight. It is so overloaded. While it's sad that only about 10% voted, I'm proud of those who did for supporting it since it required a super-majority to pass.
I am this week dealing with some real real personal crisis and I confess that one minute it's had to do things and others not so much. Still I confess that I know on any given moment the emotions will be back and darkness crashes down on me.
I have started module 4 of the Writers 2 Writers program this week and the focus is on rewriting. I ended up feeling better at the end of Module 3 and I am anxious and hopeful about this module.
I confess that I am still in awe of Marie Howe's Magdalene. What a collection of poems. What a book!
Don't ask me why, but I have been craving a Hamm's beer the last couple of days. I don't drink much beer these days. I'm more of a wine drinker and I don't do that much of it either. I can tell you the last time I had a Hamm's Beer was in Minneapolis at the AWP Conference in 2015.
That's it for this week... Be Safe - Write or at least Read Poetry.
