Written for: Poetic Asides 2019 PAD November Chapbook Challenge – Day 12
Two-for-Tuesday – Write a form and/or anti-form poem.
I need to have some structure
in my life, such as reading
poems every morning while drinking
my coffee. Too much structure–such
as going to the gym on certain days,
or going to bed at a set time
each night–produces a feeling
of being boxed in.
I need spontaneity in my life.
I do not wish to be categorized.
seagulls rest on sand
heads point in one direction
one turns away
