NaPoWriMo: April 9, 2012

Today I wrote poems with my son. He wrote a poem based on Neruda's Book of Questions. He also wrote an acrostic about Super Mario. I tried to write an acrostic, but that impulse died quickly. 


Sometimes humble  but always             dragon
occasionally     out of range
taller than that                        Braver than this
pounding pavement                        into perpetuity
fan of heat            Sometimes             celebrate good times
trash talking                  the fountain of youth 
straight jeering   the night peters out    along
with my resolve              to  self-improve   Quite
shocking   when             I open my mouth
