Apportioning

You emerge on thenapofeature3
white glow-screen. Black array, shapes
clattering from my

fingertips, apportioning
bits of my marrow each time.

NaPoWriMo Day 15

Tax day. Extension. Rehearsal. Equals tired.

Today’s prompt: And now for our prompt (optional, as always). Today, I challenge you to write a poem that addresses itself or some aspect of its self (i.e. “Dear Poem,” or “what are my quatrains up to?”; “Couplet, come with me . . .”) This might seem a little meta at first, or even kind of cheesy. But it can be a great way of interrogating (or at least, asking polite questions) of your own writing process and the motivations you have for writing, and the motivations you ascribe to your readers.

Mere words dribble

a tangle of lace stenciling

the white page.

Day 4 of NaNoWriMo prompt offers the lune, a hybrid haiku, developed by Jack Collum.

Three words, five words, and three.
