Today’s new word:
fainéant n. an idler. adj. idle; indolent.
Write a poem that emphasizes the power of “if,” of the woulds and coulds and shoulds of the world.
“After (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include: “After Dinner,” “After You,” “After Hours,” and/or “After I Finish Writing This Poem.”
Note: My poem has been deleted because it will be coming out in an anthology December 2019.
Today’s poetry book for inspiration is Night Sky with Exit Wounds by Ocean Vuong
