NaPoWriMo 13-15

I got kind of busy, and therefore behind on NaPoWriMo. But last night I received a big illustrated book about seashells, and now you get these goofy seashell catch-up poems.

Small Poem for Large Shell

Where men are native
with this foot-long conch,
they dip its rosy-yellow,
lacquered throat
and tip it out again,
to bail their boats.

Small Poem for Small Shell

The ittibittium’s
the smallest shell,
so-called because
our scientists are silly,

and given scope
to christen it,
went for punch
above dignity.

Small Poem for Ridiculous Shell

It is called “the strawberry top.”
It is a sea snail’s house.
It’s pearly with nacre inside
and pink with pinkness without.

April Comes Down Like a Wolf on the Fold

It's April 1. And that means that (no fooling) there is a new issue of Open Letters Monthly, featuring poems by Jennifer H. Fortin and Kim Roberts, a review by yours truly of new books by Melissa Broder and Sara Nicholson, a listicle of books that "might be poetry" by Elisa Gabbert, and much, much more!

And also . . . it's the first day of NaPoWriMo. Here's my first poem, inspired, per the prompt for Day 1, by a fragment generated by Reb Livingston's Bibliomancy Oracle:
