Did you know that April is National Poetry Month? At least I hope that it is and I didn’t totally make that up, but regardless, Mr. E has been writing me a poem every day and emailing it to me. Which is all kinds of awesome, I think you’ll agree. Some of his poems are actually quite lovely. It’s very romantic, I think.
I haven’t committed to writing a poem EVERY DAY because long term involvement in broad social movements makes me nervous but sometimes I get inspired and write poems back to him.
Here’s my poem of the day for Mr. E. It was, you could say, loosely inspired by real life events.
Poem of the Day
I love you very much my dear
more than the sun and the stars combined
more than you can imagine in this whole life
but if you take my fracking towel out of the bathroom
one more time
and leave me stranded
dripping and cold
in the icy bathroom
i shall have no choice
but to urinate
on your toothbrush.
