National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month, a time to promote poetry. April is also National Sexually Transmitted Disease Month, a time to promote...well, lots of things.

I'm participating in the Poem A Day challenge at the Poetic Asides blog. Every day there is a new prompt to inspire a poem. I'll post some of my efforts here.

In response to the prompt for April 3, to write a poem titled "Partly ____", here is my poem.

Partly Pretending That You’re Courteous

Partly in my way and partly not,
I’ll partly yield to the part of you
that is on the part of the sidewalk
that belongs to you and partly bump
the part of you that is not.

Happy writing.
