That’s short for National Poetry Writing Month, the month being April, of course. The idea is to write a poem a day for the whole month in celebration of (Inter)National Poetry Month. I’m already a day behind, but I’m feeling sporty.

Here’s the first of what promises to be several crappy poems in succession:


Do you try
To be meek?
And turn the
Other cheek?
Or take care
When you speak?

“I try but
Still I seek.”

(I heard about NaPoWriMo at Poetry Thursday)
