Here is my Day 28 poem using the napowrimo.net prompt: Write a meta-poem—a poem about a poem.
‘Do you know me now?’
I’ve asked the question many times
so that not even I can hear
I’ve picked through the history
it didn’t happen quite the same way
but I recognize signs in a line or two
I’ve seen artefacts
I didn’t realize I’d left behind
and have struggled without
I’ve seen metaphor
I would have struggled to fulfil
But in the end
it was true:
I was happy
