Maybe I’m missing something. Maybe I just have found-poetry-fatigue after doing the book spine poem the other day. Today’s prompt was an index poem – and I just don’t get it. Feel free to enlighten me.
What I really enjoyed from NaPoWriMo today was the poet in translation, Turkey’s Sureyya Aantmen. I especially enjoyed her poem “Birth” which you can read through the link above.
Without any further procrastination, here is my attempt at an index poem, from the AirBNB bookshelf; acrostic to give it an extra kick. At least Seven Days in Cape Town offer up some interesting place names – Anyone from SA here want to give some extra insight?
