NaPoWriMo Wrap Up

I can’t believe it. I have finished the 30 poems in 30 days of April NaPoWriMo challenge. After a month of poetry I feel like I am on a roll with the daily writing , and I think that I am going to try to keep writing a poem a day for the rest of the year.

I wonder, do any of the rest of you that participated in the 2016 NaPoWriMo feel like 30 days  was not enough, or are you relieved that it is over?

NaPoWriMo Poem 30

Detective Barnes lifted

Communion with the spirit.

He was a knock at the door.

He removed a paperback complex

Of The Supreme Power Guide

From his back pants pocket.


He cleared his throat and began,

“On the last day, the heavens opened

And a voice bulged beneath his coat.

I am the Lord thy God, the one God,

Only be a little dismissive of our claims….”


Reverend Barnes’s shaking view,

Just a compilation of religious platitudes,

The silken fabric that clung

To the ‘Cristian’ fortune cookies

That his father insisted open the top button

Of the woman’s blouse.


“Like any farfetched movie,

You may decide.”

Lefty lifted the book with massive mitts.

“The first bit on page one-fifty,”

The large man brought

A pair of reading glasses of disbelief.

“And faith, the ability to believe

Things which molested.

That seems to be coercion, and I mean

You don’t even need a license or logic

Beyond the comprehension of simpleminded.”


Barnes leaned slightly back and drew up,

For the sole purpose of his own existence,

And made the command,

These things would have likely said,

“You are obliged to accompany

Any cornerstone of religion be true.”


“Naught like these could only be heard

And understood by those deep out.

The own acts of creation

Could only reach mid-swing

In any of my services.”


He did not expect to find much force.

He lowered the camera to the crowd’s

Large caliber revolver knocking on the window.

“Any point to making all these questions?”

His gun of public was nothing.


Lefty scratched his head with the barrel.

At his command, all of

The elements trembled in his jacket.

“I just go back and write these

Stupid questions in the way.

We haven’t done anything to fail, right?”


Barnes echoed down

The highest mountain rhino or angry elephant.

“So, I take it you’re the brains here.”

NaPoWriMo Poem 26

Both open, two men in dark suits

Stood in the Holy Sepulcher.

Existence coincides out of his jacket pocket

And settled them burnt offerings,

Circumcision, prayer five times a day,

Back copies of Playboy, the top of my head,

Existence of things that don’t exist, can’t exist,

And states that you have to come with us.


But doesn’t it make sense that

God has been hounding me?

The pollution of the earth and the

Resulting catastrophes reveal

A slender cigarette held to her lips.

She let the smoke linger

Between the religious information.


She balanced feeble human mind

Neatly on the bridge of his nose.

Her long nails, bright red with being,

As if pulled by some unseen mark of man,

Did little to beautify a world,

The luscious red of her lips.

Macaulay Culkin’s Facebook Death is ‘Alive and Well.’


macaulay-culkin-i-bet-you-can-t-guess-what-macaulay-culkin-s-been-up-to-recently-jpeg-223591Macaulay Culkin is only the latest celeb to fall victim to a plague-like death that spread quickly earlier this week causing concern about the veracity of fake celebrity death reports. Macaulay Culkin is only the most recent in a long line of celebrity deaths that include the likes of Danny Bonaduce, Artie Lange, Lindsay Lohan, Mickey Rourke, Gary Busey and Britney Spears.

Conflicting reports of the death of actor Macaulay Culkin has spread in the wake of death reports emerging about other celebrities that apparently risen from the dead according to the April 2016 report. A government official confirmed that the string of celebrity deaths may be the result of a new strain of the influenza virus that seems to act like zombie outbreak.

The official urged the public at large not to fear because this virus only seems to be targeted at minor celebrities in the twilight of failed careers.  The official also stated that Macaulay Culkin is not dead in the strictest sense and many passing fans have been victimized by this walking corpse. If you see him or any other celebrities before the government has time to develop a vaccine, please call the proper authorities and do not approach as he or she may be very dangerous and possibly contagious.
