it's an experimental poem today.

does it work? I don't know.

I know what I was trying to do form-wise (a cross between a found-acrostic and a shaped poem, with the addition of a blank acrostic as a bridge) and sort of what I want it to mean (my lack of understanding people with no empathy, which I now grok is completely normal but hoo boy, did I get raked over the coals for that as a  kid/ teenager and thus always felt it was my duty to go to great lengths to understand people's bigotry, yikes), but I'm not sure if this particular wording/ poem gets there and that's totally and utterly ok.

April's poeming every day is a time to try new things.

(oh, who am I kidding! ALL poeming is a time to try new things!!!! that's what creativity IS! lol)
