Obsessed and Over taken

4 Comments

If you judge a poet, you have no time to write prose.”                                     ~Sue Batton Leonard

 Let’s start with something fresh today and talk about something different. It’s time to air my dirty laundry.

Last week in my creative writing class we were given an assignment to make a list of all of our obsessions. “Choose one, ” the professor said “and write about it; either in poem or prose form.”

My teacher has not yet seen my poem, so it is making it’s debut on this site – rough draft, unpolished. As you read my composition, remember, this is only my third attempt at writing poetry, ever!  Yes, ever. It is not really my forte.

  1. Thanks, my teacher loved it – she said she wouldn’t change a thing and that the poem reminded her of the style
    of poet Dorothy Parker. I am unfamiliar with who this is. Will have to check her out.
