Happy end of the third week of Na/GloPoWriMo 2022, everybody!
I was very pleased to see how many of you ran with Day Twenty’s rather silly food-based prompt. Again, I just couldn’t choose a single featured participant. First, we have Poet Voice‘s poem in which kielbasa tries to tempt a vegetarian, and second, Orangepeel‘s poem in which “brussels sprouts make their case.”
Today’s featured online magazine is The Night Heron Barks, which has published five issues since 2020. From their latest issue, I’ll point you to Michael Montlack’s “At 23” and Adrie Rose’s “The Flower is Haunted By.”
Today’s (optional) prompt is one I got from the poet Betsy Sholl. This prompt asks you to write a poem in which you first recall someone you used to know closely but are no longer in touch with, then a job you used to have but no longer do, and then a piece of art that you saw once and that has stuck with you over time. Finally, close the poem with an unanswerable question.
