NaPoWriMo Catch-up: Catch Up

Just because I'm now Deputy Editor of an internationally-read online LGBT magazine that doesn't mean I'm gonna let unfinished business on this blog slide. So I wrote thirty poems for NaPoWriMo this year, and I'm gonna make damn well sure I get all thirty of them up on here! Appropriately enough the first of this final batch is called Catch Up:

I can't catch up on the years
I should have spent learning

I can't catch up on the hours and nights of sleep I missed
reading Caitlin R Kiernan's run on The Dreaming
and thinking someone understood
but why'd she have to live in Alabama?

I can't catch up on the episodes

of Game of Thrones
and Once Upon a Time
I missed while I lay
in the respiratory ward.

I can't catch up on the nights I could have spent dancing
without worrying I looked too much like a girl

but I intend to.
