Today is April first, the launch of National Write a Poem month. This year, I will. You should too if you have the inclination. Remember that it doesn’t matter if the poem isn’t good some of the days that you’re writing. And it’s a poem because you say so. As for the rest, what matters is that in 30 days you will have 30 poems. You might like some of them.
Here it is, my April first
its Passover its Easter poem
this is it my non ode to what spring
is what spring can be and poems
even if it snows on Monday
even if there are no daffodils left
at the farmers market even if I’m
not sure after all this time I’m not
sure although I have written thousands
and thousands of poems I’m not sure
I can write another poem.
