NaPoWriMo: Day 5. Cleaning out the bottom drawer.


napofeature2

All writers have one: a bottom drawer full of half-finished works, scribbles and jots, and ideas which may never be more than a few marks on a napkin.

NaPoWriMo is a great opportunity to grab some of that poetic detritus, and up-cycle it.

This is one such. Still unfinished, I feel, but certainly tidied from its original state.

IN FULLNESS, I WEEP

I have been fecund for too long

Carrying this world, these children, this body

Has worn me down to skin and soul

My worldy stuff and nonsense

Is to be distributed amongst those less blessed

I will be fully empty soon

And just become a gaping space

Spewing forth nothingness to passers by

Listen to my dusty Jeremiad.

I am done with solid objects

Give me vacuum or give death

Plenum is no longer my preferred state

And if nature abhor me

I shall just abhor her back.
