Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt: take the next five random song titles from a playlist and incorporate them into a poem. What does this say about my taste in music?
Hold off on the wedding bells.
Blues are more than just music,
and certainly not something you
want to find yourself singing
as you march down the cereal aisle.
With you, it’s always something
— there I’ve said it–
There are worse things
than being lonely, boy.
The things we do for love
are not always honorable
and there are greater misfortunes
than finding yourself
at a Piggly Wiggly in Arizona
with a buy-one-get-one coupon
and no one to share
your good fortune.
