A Hundred Poems
Reading a short story a day took a short vacation. It’s not a habit yet, but it’s one I would like to have. I’ll keep trying.
Whenever I write poems, I write down the numbers and keep track of how many I write. I’ve done this since 2010. In 2010 I wrote 254 poems, and in 2011 I wrote 751 poems. As for 2012, I’ve written 166 poems so far. Keep in mind that I mostly write short poems, but I have written some longer poems I’ll revise later. I used more pages of Janet Holmes’ “The Ms of M Y Kin” to create poems Saturday, and I wrote a total of 15 poems in one day. I don’t usually write so many and surprised myself.
My poetry project on hands turned into a poetry project on the body.
Saturday and Sunday I performed in a Reader’s Theatre. I was Karintha in Jean Toomer’s “Cane.” You should definitely read it if you get the chance. It’s one of my favorite books.
