It’s April and that means it’s National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWrMo.) And it’s Wednesday, the day I began posting an outfit of the week. So, today I marry the two: An outfit and a poem. Both are a stretch to me.
Today’s prompt is a poem of negation – yes (or maybe, no), I challenge you to write a poem that involves describing something in terms of what it is not, or not like. (from NaPoWriMo.net)
"What I'm not" Brown-eyed and lithesome and unaware; Naked and Long-tressed with Siliconed breasted. Stilettoed and Slinky and Leggy-limbed; Bound and Pinched and Hemmed up to there. Jumpy and nervous and ready to swim. ( I'm good with Blued-eyed and thicker and conscious and clear. Covered and coiffed and underwired. Balanced and Mindful and practicing Here. Touching my toes to new water, Steadying myself to dive in. )
