Draft of the Week, #4.

I was unable to have my laptop repaired today, though I’ve been promised Tuesday — I warned him that if I continue to have  to use it at a 45 degree angle or less I will soon develop a humpback.  You try it and tell me how it feels.

Everything takes longer this way, but I have nevertheless finished this week’s poem, and rewarded myself with chocolate and a cup of hot tea.  There are many reasons I write, and maybe some post soon I’ll enumerate some of them, but not least among them is how truly awesome it feels  to have a new poem.

We’re off on a familial day trip on Sunday, so probably this’ll come down on Monday:

  1. I really like this!

    Just one question… is that comma after the word “coil” supposed to be a period, or did you forget another couplet?

  2. Thank you, JC, and thank you for catching that! — Supposed to be a period. One of the pitfalls of working with a wonky computer screen, I’m afraid. Fixed!

  3. I pre-ordered your book! I am looking forward to reading it. 🙂

  4. Oh wow, JC, that’s terrific, thank you!!
