Year of Poetry Update Week 14

Camel made from old roof sheets.

I increased the hours worked this week, but unfortunately it was spread across areas other than poem writing.

Still, I managed to work on a couple of drafts, and I need to remind myself as I get more competent in terms of craft, to not push myself and get despondent when the art doesn't fall into my lap.

That poetry publication I mentioned last week went live today, so you can check out the poem Lest We Forget at the Pressure gauge Journal.  I hope you enjoy or perhaps appreciate it.

This week's study was comprised of  The Poem as a Field of Action by William Carlos Williams, Preface to Some Imagist Poets by Amy Lowell, Pound's, A Retrospect and A Few Don'ts and Jane Hirshfield's essays Poetry as a Vessel of Remembrance and Writing and the Threshold Life from Nine Gates: Entering the Mind of Poetry.

My close readings were Cyril and the Snails by Alex Skovron and Scrag Lit by Alison Whittaker
