Welcome back, everyone, for the nineteenth day of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo.

Our featured participant for the day is dogtrax, where the neologism poem for Day 18 created many new compound words!

Today’s interview is with Tommy Pico, whose first book, a long poem that unfurls like an extended meditation-slash-text message, was published to critical acclaim last year. You can check out some of Pico’s work here.

And now for our daily prompt (optional, as always!). Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that recounts a creation myth. It doesn’t have to be an existing creation myth, or even recount how all of creation came to be. It could be, for example, your own take on the creation of ball-point pens, or the discovery of knitting. Your myth can be as big or small as you would like, as serious or silly as you make it.

Happy writing!

  8. No creation myth. Just the opposite really: winding down to nothing. No myth, either. Never age.

    My poem for day nineteen is about an act of creation that happens worldwide, every day. It is also something that many of us will take part in at some point in our lives.
