i want to roll around in words
or take a sponge bath
in the soft pretty ones, the ones
that fuzz and roll off your tongue
bathe my skin in the milky rhythm of an 18th century pastoral poem

But then ouch!
The sudden prick of a staccato caesura
punctures my skin. It hurts.
Magnificently.
NaPoWriMo 2012 - Poem 1.

Consider this my first poem for NaPoWriMo.

For those who don't know about that, it's the National Poetry Writing Month challenge thing. It's an annual project where participating poets attempt to write a poem a day for the month of April. [link] Have a look at the official website!

And I'm joining in lalalalalalalalalala
