NaPoWriMo – April 1

I forgot that writing poetry is hard.
In poetry you press thoughts into forms
That someone else can recognize and appreciate
Without explanations. That you’re supposed to rely
On cadence or beats or rhymes or
Things like that. And you have to
capitalize each line and not use punctuation.
Never mind. I just won’t write prose.
Fortunately, this is for me, not you.
