thirty poems, begins anew

Stephanie Gibbs

Last year, DYP! brought you the 30 Poems! chapbook, as part of the Center for New Americans literacy campaign in November. Send me an email to subscribe to the 2012 production.

This year, in a month that promises to be nose-to-the-grindstone all-work-and-no-play, the morning alarm has been set. Every day a little jingle rings out at 7.30 in the morning, and an electronic message in a brilliant cheerful shade chirps: "Write a poem!". Prompts available here.

11.1.12 : "Get acquainted with the thirty days of November: ask them what they expect from you."

Acquaintance

Each day, a vertebra formed
By a column of words, stacked:
Filled with the animating fluid of ink,
Linked by the sinews of definition,
Muscular prose,
Flexible articulation,
Holding the body in alignment.

Here, the month passes
Passes
Through silent nights
And muted days
As I trace the vertebrae
Of your sleeping back.
