Note: This is my 30th poem for April 2012—30 poems in 30 days, although sometimes the postings got bunched up or suffered gaps, depending on how I finished the poems. I did write every day, though; and to some, writing 30 poems in 30 days may not represent that much. For me, it’s more poetry than I’ve written in the last three years combined. I never anticipated they’d all be worthwhile, and they’re not. Some will languish here, others I’ll revise. Some may actually stay as they are, to be pulled into future chapbooks. Issues of quality vs. quantity aside, I’m very pleased and even more relieved. It’s a big step toward writing poetry again regularly, something that’s been sadly missing from my life.
