Hmmm. Don't know if I can get myself to write a poem a day for 30 days right now, but I think I can get myself to write one called Dreck. Yes. I think I can do that.

In spite of the fact that I am playing with hubris, schadenfreude and whatever other bathetic pratfalls this act invites, here is a list of titles that I have made up spontaneously, without regard to what is involved in writing the poems to accompany them. They are ranged by date. I intend to write a poem with the numbered title for that date and post each on my blog by midnight EDST. (I am going to regret this.)

Anyone else who wants to do this (even using these titles) is welcome to do so (in the Poems for Critique Section or in their own blogs).

My NaPoWriMo List

1. Cruel Gruel
2. Cirque de Squirrel
3. Sculpture
4. Tasks
5. Blue on Blue
6. Recrimination
7. Traffic
8. Meditation on a row of pines
9. Catalogue
10. Talisman
11. Apple time
12. Bitsa
13. Chronology
14. Drowning in a drop of water
15. Leaves in Sunlight
16. Moonsong
17. Pale
18. Stone on Stone
19. Ripple
20. Trident
21. Escarpment
22. Soft
23. Buddings
24. Irresistible
25. Icon
26. Waiting
27. Paint
28. Grotesque
29. Arabesque
30. Stew

I just might do that. Perhaps all acrostics. I copied your list of titles. Obviously I'm insane.

For some reason I cannot determine, the board will not let me edit the original post again to insert the link for 3. Sculpture

So here it is: Sculpture
