Write a “Bad” Poem

When you try to be “good” it doesn’t always work, but something fascinating happens when you try to be “bad.”

The first poem I wrote that went into my first published chapbook started out as a joke. It was the mid-2000s, back when poets had blogs, and many poets I knew were doing “NaPoWriMo,” or National Poetry Writing Month. The challenge was to write a new poem every day during the month of April and post all these poems on your blog.
