Day one poem: LexPoMo

LexPoMo2017June is Lexington Poetry Month, and once again I’ve signed up for the LexPoMo challenge: to write a poem each day and post at least five. As part of my preparation, I compiled a list of prompts from various places, and the list itself took on the shape of a poem in places. So here is a kind of found poem, cobbled together from a bone pile of prompts.

Bone pile

it’s just hard
to know what to do
with her

booze like water
chugs and weeps
a broken faucet

I once knew
how to celebrate
humdrum: cook

with these old men
smother them
with kindness

I understood
this before

we traded places
