National Poetry Writing Month 2019 Day #26 (pt. 1)

Here is my Day 26 poem using the napowrimo.net prompt: Repetition!

1
A catalogue of my obsessions takes many forms
(I miss her)

2
I’m buying a recorder
to give myself another way
to document my mistakes

Four tracks
no waiting

3
A catalogue of my obsessions takes many forms
(I miss her)

4
Back and forth
round and round
over and over

Coming to the same conclusion every time
until I change my mind

5
A catalogue of my obsessions takes many forms
(I miss her)

6
Singularities
turned multiples

X infinity multiplies
replicants

Revolutions per minute
kilocycles per second

7
A catalogue of my obsessions takes many forms
(I miss her)

8
I am a creature of habit
often in 4/4 time
often without meter, form, or rhyme

Confounding expectations since 1963

9
A catalogue of my obsessions takes many forms
but the last one went out just this morning

It’ll be a while before I can send out a new one
