Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
Hi, everyone–sorry if you got an incorrect email of this post yesterday (and it was probably still last week’s post, anyway). I’m switching over servers, and it’s a big honking mess! Anyway.

2) Mississippi River, and how it starts out as a tiny trickle you can walk across on stones
3) In war, one of the common strategies is to destroy bridges
And here’s my first draft:

Let gulls nest in your hair
Be a poem
