NaPoWriMo half-way check in

I’ve been trying and failing to write a poem a day in April. As you can see from my collection, there is a week or so where I was too preoccupied with the Creswick Theatre Company season of The Sum of Us to write poetry.

Anyway, here’s yesterday’s effort.

Read it aloud for maximum effect. If you’re in Ballarat and you’re into spoken word poetry and short stories, come along to the local monthly Words Out Loud this Thursday. I’m hoping to get along and actually read something to an audience.
