Today’s napowrimo.net prompt is to write a ‘how-to’ poem. Technically, I have already posted my poem for the day—but that was really a ‘readymade’ poem, so here is one that I just wrote.
Stay up all night doing something—having adventures, getting into trouble, reading a book, or whatever.
Don’t go to bed, no matter how sleepy you may get.
The next morning, don’t get up, because you didn’t go to bed.
Go to the library.
Find a comfortable chair, preferably in a study room, or in a quiet area near the back.
Sit down. Sit back in the chair.
Close your eyes, just for a moment.
Several hours later, wake up. Wonder how long you’ve been asleep.
Repeat 7 and 8 as needed.
