Day 1 – NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2020

Oh my
my brain is fried
Fried like the chicken

Seriously, today is the first day of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2020!

Today, however, I’d like to challenge you to write a self-portrait poem in which you make a specific action a metaphor for your life – one that typically isn’t done all that often, or only in specific circumstances. For example, bowling, or shopping for socks, or shoveling snow, or teaching a child to tie its shoes.

I’m not sure Ifollowedthe prompt exactly, but this is my result.



The sun shimmers

While the volcano simmers

Under my coiffed hair

She asks again!

I think– “Is there no end?”

My mouth spews fire and flame
