It’s official: I hit the double-digit poem count for NaPoWriMo! Ten down, 20 more to go!
NaPoWriMo gave the option to write an un-love poem, one about a sarcastic dislike. I wrote about something that annoys me constantly every time I run a quick errand:
Crossing the Street in an Inner-City Neighborhood
Oh, how I love walking down the street
with nothing to distract me,
just listening to my shuffling feet.
I love it even more when cars drive pass the crosswalk.
I lose my right-of-way
as if I wasn’t the first person on the block.
I let the car drive past,
but when the next car pulls up,
I make sure I walk fast.
