100 Day Project Three – Days 44, 45

DAYS 44, 45 (July 25th, 26th, 2018)

SUMMER AFTERNOON (fragments)

I catch her breath like a hawk
upon a pendulous breeze—
untrammeled by shame—
by an albatross of regret.

Polyps of sweat
burst my bronzing skin.
My face unfolds
for the sun—
bends to the tips
of her fingers—
hot, gilt, curious
and resurrecting.


Novel X

Disclaimer: I’ve fallen quite behind! In order to catch up, I’m putting Novel X on hold and concentrating on poetry!

The 100 Day Project

The 100 Day Project

The 100 Day Project is a creativity excavation. It’s about unearthing dormant or unrealized creativity by committing to a daily practice everyday for 100 days.
Creativity is a skill. The more we practice, the more skilled we become. Practice takes time. Practice takes commitment. Practice is a radical act in this speeded up world. Through practice, we develop a creative habit. Through habit, we reconnect with and know ourselves again as a creative being.

I started this, my third, 100 Day Project on June 12th, 2018. My project is to write at least one first-draft stanza inspired by a poem, a quote, an idea, a painting—anything, really (or nothing at all) and to write at least one hundred shitty first-draft words of my novel. I’ll post the results here.

Enjoy!
