Don’t inhale crisps
I’m a complicated situation
waiting to happen
Day 14 of #NaPoWriMo. I love today’s prompt: And last but not least, our (optional) prompt! Today’s prompt comes to us from TJ Kearney, who invites us to try a seven-line poem called a san san, which means “three three” in Chinese (It’s also a term of art in the game Go). The san san has some things in common with the tritina, including repetition and rhyme. In particular, the san san repeats, three times, each of three terms or images. The seven lines rhyme in the pattern a-b-c-a-b-d-c-d.
I don’t like what I wrote for it. I also don’t like that I don’t want to share what I wrote for it, because I judge it ‘not good enough’. Inner conflict. So I’m sharing what I wrote yesterday evening. It somehow reflects the state of mind I was in.
