High Marks

NaPoWriMo Day 29: Today, I challenge you to write a poem in the form of a review. You can review either animate or inanimate things, real places or imaginary places. You can write in the style of an online review (think Yelp) or something more formal that you might find in a newspaper or magazine. (I imagine that bad reviews of past boyfriends/girlfriends might be an easy way to get into this prompt, though really, you can “review” anything in your poem, from summer reading lists for third graders to the idea of the fourth dimension).

Exceeding expectations, you set a high level of capability
Identifies opportunities for self-improvement
Injects innovation, creativity, and generosity
Demonstrates good taste and reasonable judgment
Not to mention adventurous, smart, and funny
Plus the points you get for just showing up
Spoiling me with consistency
Comfortable in your own skin
Oh wait, that’s me.
