GloPoWriMo Day 21

Here he comes
They whisper whisper
See his eyes
Indigo dreams
They stare stare
Hold him hold him
Almost there
So hungry hungry
They feed feed
He whispers I love you
And they spin spin
Tears fall
Ripples in the reflection
They wail and beg
More more
He whispers I miss you
And they tumble
Drunken revelers
Drinking pure emotion
He whispers I’m sorry
They shine shine
And he sees
For a moment
The loved one


And now for our (optional) prompt. In her interview, Brim provides us with several suggestions for generative writing exercises, and we’d like to challenge to today to tackle her third one, which is based in the myth of Narcissus. After reading the myth, try writing a poem that plays with the myth in some way. For example, you could imagine the water is speaking to you, the narcissus flower. Or you could write a poem in which the narcissus berates the Kardashians for stealing their neurosis. Or a poem that comments on the narcissism of our time, i.e. beauty and body obsession, etc.
