Birthdays have never really affected me...until now. I’m turning 40 tomorrow and I thought it’d be fun to wax poetic on 40 of my favorite books, or 40 great writers or 40 ways to procrastinate when you have a writing deadline...but let’s face it, a list of 40 is just too long!
So here’s a 40 word poem.
In my sentence of life
40 seizes a semicolon;
detaching the past from the future
40 exclaims authentically!
and questions unequivocally?
But I’d prefer that 40 pause.
anticipating the page turns
of the rest of my life.
How would your age be represented in the sentence of life?
