Now that I’m back home, I can upload the rest of the couples series I wrote for National Poetry Month. I’m not sure if I should continue taking pictures of the poems, or just scan them into the computer. Which image style do you think is best? Here’s an example of a scanned poem, and here’s an example of a photographed poem. Would love your opinions! Thanks :)

Anyway, here’s couple #11–

"Couple #11"  this ain't sand we're stepping on, but pebbles polished stone, our bodies warmed by fires inside  thank you, vodka and pineapples  we hold hands on the brim of perlite sea foam and obsidian waters absorbing the glare from adhd stars  let's reset our dna. mix-match molecules, redo chromosomes. let's fall asleep like brothers do-- slip off your trunks and sink into the warmth with me  - billimarie

prompt: “why do we call oranges oranges and carrots, not?”

(You can submit a poetry prompt here)

prompt: “I have traveled the earth with only a slight, compact bag at my shoulders that held a camera, enough clothes for tomorrow. I have dwelled and dined in cities where a constant flow of human traffic streaks by, as seen through a window. I have wandered endless fields that stretch to the horizon like the blue Pacific. and I am left to wonder, where is home?”

I broke my own rules for this poem. First I wrote a completely different one that focused more on traveling. then I tried the prompt again and got this little diddy

prompt: “life on other planets :D”
