Today's poetry inspiration was about writing a strong title for a poem, and was offered by Stefanie Boutelier.
The poem I wrote is on the 'lighter' side (after writing a couple intense ones in recent days). I have three ideas for titles:
This I Have Not Missed
It Snakes Up On You
I’ve Been Down This Road Before
Here's the poem I wrote, as we made our way through traffic -
weaving stop start slink slither
traffic stretches out languidly thenabruptly coils in tight blind curves
periods of only subtle movement
serpentine locomotion, my spine bendsaverse to being so entwined
the pandemic, it’s insistence on lying low?
I’ve lost my traffic muscle, limbless, softwhat lurks in the many miles ahead?
