NaPoWriMo 2015

Day 8: Palinode. . . or retracting an earlier poetic statement. i.e. changing my mind. possibly in an ode form?? or not? and. backtracking. . . .


Walking Backward into the Face of Hard Words

retracing my steps. to a choice never taken. a do-over path. I wish. to never. be. on. again. with the sleep of night. a distance gathering around the edges. a shattered glass vase. I scuff out the marks. and remarks. of spoken. and unspoken words.

etched. into the petals. of memory. an exact replica. of words I retract. and double back. on. into another day. or the day before. once again. and double up. or double down. on. these words—retraction.

this whirling sound 
regathering the words 
I’ve spoken


Day 9: visual poetry

reaching toward infinity
