You would think that by giving me just one word to incorporate, Rebecca could have relied on a prompt turnaround by me, but once again I have been tied up in much busyness, and it was seeing Rebecca on the weekend at a wonderful conference that reminded me about my tardiness.
So, here is my poem, with apologies for lateness.
wrote about poetry
but that would be too meta.
wrote about Rebecca
but she wrote about me last time.
wrote about not knowing
what to write about, but that’s been done.
I wrote about all three things.
I’m almost too clever!
