When U Were Mine


A year ago today, Prince passed away.  It was the middle of National Poetry Writing Month, and while I marked his passing on Twitter by pointing to a Prince song I recorded in 2011, I didn't do anything here.

This year I seem to be posting poems to Twitter (at least for now), and I figured I should give him a tiny amount of his due here. So, I pounded out this Prince-penned classic, which was probably better known as a Cyndi Lauper song until it appeared on Prince's Hits album set.

RIP.

The Annual NaPoWriMo Post, 2017


So!

I'm about to do a bunch of travel--indeed, I'm writing this from an airport lounge.  However, April is about to begin, and that means National Poetry Writing Month. I've been doing this since 2010, and writing an intro post each year. For the last several years I've been doing space poetry specifically. This year, I'm going to do whatever my mood suggests.

For this year's intro post, I'm mostly just going to point to the intro posts from previous years. Have at, and please join me (and my poetry posse) in writing!
