NaPoWriMo #18

NaPoWriMo #18

It's getting tiring..

cooking a poem

the fire's there
the ink is heated
but when i throw
in the words,
try to stir fry

trying to cook
a decent poem,
i wonder
have i chopped them
up properly
diced them verbs nicely
minced the nouns
selected the right metaphors

have i added them
in the right order
or missing some spice
of adjectives.

and when it's done
serve it on a page
and garnish with line breaks.


This piece seems quite incomplete, but it's the best i can do for today..
