NaPoWriMo April 22 – still catching up!

April 24, 2013

napo2013buttonBy my reckoning if I post three poems tonight I will have caught up.  So I’ve spent today writing.  I have three new poems.  One follows yesterday’s prompt to write Fortune cookie one liners.  One is very dark and is to do with establishing power over children and the last one is nice and light and to  do with confusion, cooking and chorizo.  These fortune cookie aphorisms are all made up and are a mix of good and bad, happy and sad, obviously right and just plain wrong.

Fortune cookie aphorisms


Your tears mark beginnings, not endings.

The only thing that needs a good beating is your heart.

If you stray into the shadows make sure you carry a torch.

There is a difference between paying the bills and making money.

Keep life at a manageable level or let it expand to fill every corner, you choose.

A stupid question asked confidently will be considered more carefully than an intelligent question asked timidly.

Prepare for death, it’s life that’s the aberration.

Half-assed is worse than nothing at all.

The answer is in the bottom of the bottle, I just haven’t found the right one yet.
