I have outdone myself! I can’t believe I’ve been writing poetry for fifteen days now. I’m a moody poet and this, for me, is a new high. Thanks to the compelling prompts at NaPoWriMo. No, there are no breaks even on Sundays. I’m not trying too hard, simply having fun.
Well, the prompt for Day Fifteen is to write a poem about something you have absolutely no interest in. This isn’t quite the same, I think, as something you’re indifferent to. For example, I have absolutely no interest in investment strategy. Anytime anyone tries to tell me about it, I want to put my fingers in my ears and go “lalalalalala.” My brain tries to shut down! This is honestly kind of funny, and I think this prompt has value precisely because it invites you to investigate some of the “why” behind resolutely not giving two hoots about something.
Here I go!
NOT MY BUSINESS
Use a primer as the base
That’s not the right shape for
Apply the shade in natural light
Focus on the cheekbones under
Go bold, don’t overload
Smudgy is in trend, it’ll boost
That’s too much of a greasy
Overdrawn lips look so lame
Mac or Lush, wear what you must
Spare me the notes please
Nude or Matte, Smokey or Shimmer
Only adds to my bag of worries
So, if you miss the sparkle in my eyes
You’ll probably have to recite it again
Chances are bleak that I should hear
But I’ll get you someone who really cares!
