I’m almost up to Status Report 200. These poems were not originally designed to be a cohesive flow, so I’m starting to go back and patch some of the more awkward segues. Here’s my latest batch patch.

Status Report 2.1

Sun rise
I’m still alive
Now what?


Status Report 13.1

From bed
to coffee
to day


Status Report 21.1

Bath hot
body sore
brain “ahhhhh”


Status Report 27.1

Thank you Great Mother Father Other or Nought
for whatever oddness wrought in this knot
may rot not spoil the plot


Status Report 53.1

Left with seeds and stems
twigs and seeds
to welcome in the norm
