How did I miss the beginning of National Poetry Month?
Maybe because April 1st is April Fool's Day and though I've never been astoundingly pranked, I always live April 1st with a nervous tension as if someone is going to play a colossal prank on me.
Regardless, it's now in full swing and I'll be sharing bits and pieces of poetry with you throughout the month.
You're Like Dolly Parton Only You're Not
You're like Dolly Parton
only you're not
in love with me
the way she loves
a hot pink electric guitar.
