“Any writer worth his salt writes to please himself…It’s a self-exploratory operation that is endless. An exorcism of not necessarily his demon, but of his divine discontent.” ― Harper Lee

Keep Writing!

My prompt poem for Day 26  (I posted Day 27 yesterday…and out of the usual order I have been posting). The prompt was to create a list of words from a book.   My Wordscame  from page 26/27 of Body & Soul by Frank Conroy (only a few paragraphs on page 26 so went to page 27 to finish random word lists

Words:   Moved, side, winter, piano, method, bills

 

Write 2 different poems with the words

 

Paying the bills

Christopher J. Jarmick

 

My foolproof method involved moving

the bills from one side of the counter

to the piano and I would pay them the following Friday.

Last winter they were moved

to the magazine pile on the coffee table,

so most were paid late.

 

Ghost Piano

By Christopher J. Jarmick

 

Last winter the piano

was moved from the house

I grew up in.

I learned the Bastien method

for a couple years from  a teacher

who gave lessons to pay the bills

and on the side was part of a blues/jazz ensemble.

 

When I visited the house

I stared at the place the piano once occupied.

My knees involuntarily began to bend

as I thought about sitting on the bench

to play a few simple chords.
