"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2017 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw or get my first book and see how the work evolves with new books rolling out next year.

How to write a blog poem in second person

How to write a blog poem in second person:

Turn on laptop
open blog
check for comments
plan to “really get them this time”
go get your glasses downstairs in the kitchen
stop to put away laundry
take dirty laundry down
stop to put away lunch dishes
make a peanut butter and butter sandwich
take laundry down and sort
put in a load of darks
clean out lint trap
bring clean load of pink laundry up
sit down at computer
check for an unfinished poem
go get your glasses downstairs in the kitchen
sit down at computer
forget what you were going to write
