For 2016's National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), Troy's Work Table is writing thirty poems in thirty days, but only publishing three lines (or less) from each rough draft poem here at TWT.


:: crawling over the stink :: humping one another ::

dots of eggs :: maggots stirring in the stew

:: splitting soft white skins :: emerging forth :: orange and translucent pink ::


Three lines from a poetic response upon reading chapter 10, "Fecundity," of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard + having to clean up the sludge of rotting walnuts in the process of making walnut ink.
