For 2015's National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), Troy's Work Table is writing thirty poems in thirty days.




Never mind the frontal lobe
and the higher functions—
speech and self-control, abstract thought

let’s bypass even the reptilian brain

wonder at our slime mold selves

where one is all fever and drooling

billions of years slamming into the now
in the container of one speck of being

sending it lurching about
stumbling gelatinous
reaching out toward the sustaining stars—

the light, the life-giving light
the ever- present light.
