Day 20 of NaPoWriMo. What seemed like an easy prompt, turned out little more difficult to write on today. The prompt is, “write a poem that states the things you know. For example, “The sky is blue” or “Pizza is my favorite food” or “The world’s smallest squid isParateuthis tunicata. Each line can be a separate statement, or you can run them together. The things you “know” of course, might be facts, or they might be a little bit more like beliefs. Hopefully, this prompt will let your poem be grounded in specific facts, while also providing room for more abstract themes and ideas.”
I know I am me But only ten percent, like the African savannah, where - there are lions, leopards and cheetah there are wildebeest, cape buffaloes, zebras and giraffes, and rhinos and elephants there are elands, gazelles, impalas and waterbucks, I am an ecosystem of microfauna - Nine out ten cells of my microbiota - my savannah - is bacteria, yeast, fungi, archaea and achari. I know I am me, But barely.
