NaPoWriMo: Poem 26 - (Only the Good) Cable News

As part of National Poetry Writing Month, I will be writing 30 poems in 30 days. I will try to write one each day, but if I miss a day or two, I will catch up on later days. Sometimes I will be following prompts; while other days will come from my own ideas.

I only managed to write one poem last night (below), leaving four to write today. Can I do it? Stay tuned!

NaPoWriMo: Poem 29 - hate is less thin than remember

As part of National Poetry Writing Month, I will be writing 30 poems in 30 days. I will try to write one each day, but if I miss a day or two, I will catch up on later days. Sometimes I will be following prompts; while other days will come from my own ideas.

I based this poem on the prompt from NaPoWriMo.net, which was to take a short poem and write a counterpoint to it by rewriting it replacing words with words that have the opposite meaning. I chose an e.e. cummings poem, which worked surprisingly well.
