It’s right about now that I start missing the point
the point where poetry marathon seems like a ridiculous idea.
Write a poem an hour for 24 hours
set your alarm forgo the prompts and write.
Sometimes interrupting conversations rewriting them short spurts feigning verse
What is the point? How much good will come of 24 poems in 24 hours
perhaps one in the mix will be worth a damn
if I don’t go to sleep in the next 40 minutes I won’t wake up to write another
one on the hour
