For today’s poem, the last of the month, I decided to play along with NaPoWriMo’s challenge to write a palinode, which I’d never heard of before. A palinode is a poem that essentially “retracts” a position you’ve held in a previous poem. The draft of this was much longer, but I found that I didn’t need most of what I’d written to capture the idea.
I don’t think I will write a poem today
It’s raining, and I’ve opened the window to listen
