Swear to god, it’s good

napowrimo day 28

What is the point of this pointy strifey life, eh?

What if is isn’t, eh?

Isn’t what?

Pointy or pointless?

I’m lost, hen!

What if is ain’t pointy, anointy, but swervy and curvy, chick?

Would you think that is cute, brutus?

What is cute, anyway?

Wait! What do you want?

Can we be just us? Be ourselves and yell when we want? Or must we be most oft quiet?

Should I wait?

Will there be some semblance of answer?

How does one stop the dribblesome questions?

How many stops are enough before stop stops up, luv?

How many spots before spots become just one long spot?

Who are you, ducky? Have a thinky. Or not…..

Are you one or two? Or more? Are you polka-dotted or cockily confident?

Can you hear me from up there on your cloud? Should we speak louder?

Wait! Don’t

NaPoWriMo

Our prompt today (optional, as always), is to write a poem that poses a series of questions. The questions could be a mix of the serious (“What is the meaning of life?”) and humorous (“What’s the deal with cats knocking things off tables?”), the interruptive (“Could you repeat that?”) and the conversational (“Are those peanuts? Can I have some?”). You can choose to answer them – or just let the questions keep building up, creating a poem that asks the reader to come up with their own answer(s).
