I am participating in the Columbus Arts Festival Poetry Slam on Saturday! The slam will be happening on Saturday, June 7, between 8:00 P.M. and 10:00 P.M. at the Poetry Corner, which is at the corner of Cleveland Avenue and Gay Street, right across the street from the Columbus College of Art and Design in downtown Columbus. Admission is free for the festival. So if you’re in Columbus, come out Saturday night and watch me get my slam on! And for that matter, come out for the poets at the Poetry Corner too (various performance times Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). It should prove to be an awesome weekend of poetry!
This is a poem for this week’s Read Write Poem prompt. This week the prompt was to take a poem written in one form and rewrite it in another. I chose “Katie, Bar The Kitchen Door”, originally a Chaucerian roundel, and rewrote it as a hay(na)ku chain. Enjoy.

when he goes;
back with scars.
