40 words

Birthdays have never really affected me...until now.  I’m turned 40 2 days ago and I thought it’d be fun to wax poetic on 40 of my favorite books, or 40 great writers or 40 ways to procrastinate when you have a writing deadline...but let’s face it, a list of 40 is just too long!

So here’s a 40 word poem.


40 Words

In my sentence of life

40 seizes a semicolon;

detaching the past from the future


Yes!

40 exclaims authentically!

and questions unequivocally?


But I’d prefer that 40 pause.

An ellipse...

anticipating the page turns

of the rest of my life.
What is the metaphor for your age?
