And thus, it begins...

In the tired and perhaps egomaniacal way that poets of the past have publicly declared their New Year's resolution to write one poem a day and serve it cold to the waiting patrons of their hot n ready diners, I too have decided to commit to a 365 day poetic practice. I am not claiming that these poems will all be good. It is highly possible that none will be good. I do, however, think that it is high time that I commit to something and see it through. I am counting on the readers of this blog and the dedicated patrons of the far superior WJW to see me through on this adventure. Because of tiem restraints and not having a computer with internet it is possible that I will not be able to post each day. I will, however, give you my Aggie word that if a poem is posted with a date as its title, that poem was written during that day CST. I'm excited about this little journey and the small tribe of travellers who will see it through with me. It is my hope that December 31, 2009 will be a day of accomplishment. May this new dedication to my poetry blog be a path to expression, honesty, and occassional targeted assault on people, places, or things.
