Well, I survived my 10K yesterday and did my final reads in Austin. Later this morning, Tammy and I will be hitting the road to drive back to Atlanta!

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “So (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles could include: “So Cool,” “So Stupid,” “So Not What I Would’ve Done,” “So Sweet,” or so many other possibilities.

Here’s my attempt at a So Blank Poem:

“So long, Austin”

So long, Austin. I’ll miss
your poems & poets;

I’ll miss your barbecue
& taco stands. I’m a fan

of your big hearts & big
everything else. O, Austin,

I’ll miss your bats & your
parks & your music &

did I mention the poets?
