Poetic Asides Preparation

PAD Preparation

I usually write
off the top of my head,
not giving much thought
to planning for PAD.
But if I did,
what would it look like?
Perhaps list possible forms,
or things I’ve been thinking about,
or topics of interests.
How about experiences,
or interesting words for “wordles”.
Or maybe a theme
which all 30 plus poems
would reflect.
I’d examine my schedule.
When am I going to write said poems?
I’d make a plan of attack
like a general off to war.
Maybe I’d read blogs
on poem writing and revising.
Or maybe I’ll just
take off my perfectionism hat
and write from the top of my head.
