Congratulations to Carol Dorf, winner of my inaugural monthly poetry contest! She won a $25 gift card to East Bay Booksellers.
Yes, inaugural winner, because this was so much fun that I’m going to run it again! Details in early November.
For now, please enjoy Carol’s winning poem!
At this Resolution
How do ants avoid drowning,
and how sympathetic to their plight
should I be? I admit I am a monster
when they form lines across the counter.
They (and I) wish I were on a sofa
zoning into the NBA finals, or maybe
attempting to mimic the choreography
that follows the irresistible rise of k-pop.
