Three New Poems

I am still working my way through Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge’s poemcrazy. I promise I will eventually write a review. Here are some new poems I wrote inspired by exercises from the book:

The seventh level of hell

lost in that Swedish assemble-it-yourself furniture store:
the floor plan
stifling crowds of people sifting for bargains
too many colors
items I didn’t know I needed
too many choices
Who puts this crazy pattern in their house?
What could possibly coordinate with it?
overwhelmed by too much sensory bombardment
How do I get to the exit?
only three more miles

Work in Progress

My desk is a work in progress
The to-be-filed stack grows ‘til it topples
The projects suffer from lack of attention
Scraps of paper bear fetuses of ideas not yet born
Supplies wait in faithful readiness for service
Pictures taped to the wall attempt to cheer and inspire me

My life is a work in progress
What will I become
What will I leave behind
