April 1st begins NaPoWriMo. If you want to participate, here’s the link.

Prompt: “Kay-Ryan-esque poem: short, tight lines, rhymes interwoven throughout, maybe an animal or two, and, if you can manage to stuff it in, a sharp little philosophical conclusion.”



Later, I thought

then forgot

the thought

as ideas pried me

away to webland

where hours mislaid

drinks with friends

some words too

binged Netflix

ate books

photographed a flicker

forgot about later

some more

saw headlines

read a story

cell rang

words exchanged

someone tagged

me in a photo

forgotten past

jarring roused

denial doused

so many laters

lived yesterday


discomfort allayed

dial the number

later postponed

no longer


end 4/1/2017
