This is the first day that I have really felt the poem not working. Not working at all. I’m not sure what happened, but I definitely didn’t feel the spark today.

Rachel’s Day 18 Poem: To My Eight-Year-Old Son Who Hates Poetry
Someone Else’s Poem: Beth Ann Fennelly’s “Because People Ask What My Daughter Will Think of My Poems When She’s 16”

Ah well. Tomorrow is another day.
