Yesterday I posted a limerick explaining a couple of the “creative reasons” I write poetry. Check that out here! Today I bring more clarity to the reasons I do what I do, expressed in an a tanka-ish formatted poem.
Reasons I Write #2, A Tanka Poem
Sports, not my forte,
Comedy rejected me,
my twisted humour,
Reason for coffee shop visit,
as I do not enjoy coffee.
What better to do; than cynically exercise my brain, satirize the arbitrary, and attempt to look artsy while sipping a hot chocolate and hogging a cafe’s free wi-fi? This bitter resentment of the talent I don’t possess was brought to you for NaPoWriMo day 3, and for today’s Daily Post prompt, clarity! :p
Why do you write? Let me know in the comments! Cheers! -MC
