Poems That Shouldn't Be Writ

Assignment for today's writing class: create two poems closely modeled on the poetry you've read from your assigned readings.

Sigh. Though I more often am comfortable with poetic prose, a few poems have come to these pages over the last year, come out of deep emotion, had to come out because I would burst if they didn't.

I feel doomed to failure in this assignment... a poem created by artificial insemination, followed closely by conception, 10 minutes of gestion and immediate birth, full grown. Agghhh! The HORROR! The HORROR!

Fred: sounds like a case of following your pain to me...

A painful birth can still produce a beautiful bouncing baby... go for it. ;-)
