NaPo Poems Moved

Now I’m working on my 1000 lines of blank verse.

First 18 lines.

I am certifiable.

  1. Hmm. I’ve been considering doing the 1000BV thingie, but as I fell two poems short for April, it might show some kind of blind optimism. Especially since I’m not sure I even like blank verse very much.

  2. I mean, obviously it would be silly to actually say I don’t like BV—cos of like, Shakespeare and shit—but the form itself doesn’t excite me and I think it’s lost a lot of its natural role with the invention of free verse. And the novel. Or something like that.

  3. Come on, Harry! You can do two poems for NaPo in BV.

    I wasn’t all that excited, but now that I’m in, I’m in.

    There’s always the option of writing plays in BV. You mightn’t be a playwright, like me, but Walcott’s done it, so there’s precendent in the Caribbean. I never have.
