NaPoWriMo2016: Day 16½

 

NaPoWriMo

One thousand clever monkeys
one thousand battered keyboards
thirty thousand verses
a million words
and a starling sits on the telephone wire
hungrily eyes my shoddy lawn for worms
can’t tell me where her nest is
just cocks her head in inquisition
she hasn’t read one damn poem
not one
not a single word.
