Last week I reached my 50,000 word goal for the month of November! To anyone else who participated in National Novel Writing Month, congratulations! This year, I wrote 50k words of poetry. On Monday, I started reading through and revising.
To be honest, most of it is garbage. But there’s a lot of stuff in there with potential. Such as:
November 6Poem 9Here’s what I learned in Art History:A woman in a Renaissance painting has powdered white skin (no other color)and never fartsor shitsor vomits after too much wine.No one has to hold back her pompadourwhile she pukes up her servant-made supper into a golden chamber pot.She doesn’t do drugs or smoke.Her somber expression pouts at the painters.The world’s first selfies.
Now, I don’t agree with the last line even though I wrote it. The argument can be made that the world’s first selfies were actually cave paintings and little sculptures done long before Renaissance painting was a thing. Anyway, I’ve got LOTS of editing to do.
See you soon,
