NaPoWriMo #1

On a whim last night, after seeing a few of my other friends are doing NaPoWriMo this year, I decided to give it a go.

Here is poem #1:

Little headless bodies
of papier mâché
clothed in newsprint swimsuits:
Wimbledon, China, a traveler’s
forecast.
Absurd, kitschy nothings
for $1.50 each
an object of a woman
a torso             dressmaker’s dummy
next to the animal circus
notepads, cards, crazy
straws, and masks
to mask the exploitation
at $1.50 each.
I sell and sell
Wimbledon, China, a traveler’s
forecast.
