Poetry from the 3:15 Experiment: almost kicked my butt

October 4, 2010

Poetry from the 3:15 Experiment 2010
August 31, 2010 3:15am home

Last night of the 3:15 Experiment 2010.
It’s been a long month.

I let a lot of poems get away.
But I tried to catch them.

I tried to not let grief kick my butt.
But it did.

The night terror tonight
overcame my best efforts.

I cried & cried & almost
threw in the towel.

But I did it
complications and all.

And now back
to bed.

August is long gone, September is now over, and here we are in October! I think I’m done posting poems from the 2010 3:15 Experiment. I’m organizing two 3:15 Experiment manuscripts right now, Love and Terror at 3:15am: Poetry from the 3:15 Experiment 2001-2009 and a smaller chapbook of about 3 dozen 3:15  poems from 2002-2010 which focus on being a daughter, having a son, and losing a mom. Some of these poems have been published here on this blog, and some not.

The book is being published and distributed by en theos press (which published a 3:15 poetry collection between sleeps edited by Danika Dinsmore and I). It will be available at the end of the month–and yes, you will be hearing more about it!

For more poetry, catch the Monday Poetry Train!

    glad to have stopped by enjoyed reading the post… it is exactly like that having recently participated in readwritepoem’s napowrimo… once it was over, i felt totally exhilarated that i had completed it… with the possibility looming in my head that i could call myself a writer…

    I’m glad you stopped by also!

    I keep thinking I will do NAPOWRIMO but haven’t yet…

    there is something about writing in the middle of the night that keeps you from putting it off!
