I seem to be in a reading poetry mode.
Write Bloody Revivals. Bukowski, Franny Choi, David Perez, Robin Merrill Kristin O’Keefe Aptowicz. Misspellings. Amazing chapbooks from new poets like Kirsten Uhde.
A Hundred Years of Haiku in English… Planning to go to a haiku workshop again in my yearly retreat.
Taking information in. Taking styles in.
It’s future poetry.
Not writing as much as I like but I think it’s coming.
Listening to poetry, reading poetry, writing poetry. It’s a happy circle.
I like narrative poetry. I like clear language. I love hilarious poetry that makes me burst out laughing. A hilarious poem is a great poem.
So the poetry is simmering up. Looking forward to what’s coming and of course reading more poetry.
I hope for the well to flow again.
