Year of Poetry Update - Week 45

Well, a shit week in more ways than one.  Cohen died.  America elected Trump and I manged to catch a throat infection.  

The Writing...

was again difficult due to starting late Sunday afternoon.  Managed to scrape together about an hour and a half  and push another poem towards first draft status. But this was about the tiredest I have felt around writin poetry. 

I have also banned myself from reading Shakespeare's Sonnets as I subconciously managed to channel some rythm and rhyme into the aforementioned poem.

The Study...


Close Reading...

I started reading The Poems of Masayo Koike, Shuntaro Tanikawa and Rin Ishigaki by Vagabond Press.  Specificially Rin Ishigaki's Moving on. I think this is my first translated poem for the year.
