Day 12. At least a dozen poems for each of us by the end of the day.
Maureen Thorson's NaPoWriMo prompt: "Have you ever flipped to the index of a book and found it super interesting?
Robert Lee Brewer's PAD prompt: "Two-for-Tuesday day! For today’s prompt, take on one (or both) of the following prompts: (1) Write a serious poem. Or

From the Index of Rock ’Em Sock ’Em Robots:
Alan excerpts from an actual index in an actual book.
Quotidian Items Listed in the Index for
Alan, some of these items are odd, even puzzling, although serious, while others are just plain silly! Bravo mixing all three prompts!
About his poem today, Ven says, "So this is a serious index poem, I guess. I wanted to be silly but it wasn't happening."
A Selective Index of First Lines
Ven, this reads fairly well as a connected narrative, not just separate, discrete lines.
Jed went rogue today, eschewing both prompts. He dallies here with Paul Laurence Dunbar and Maya Angelou.
And then Jed went double-rogue, writing another poem that also doesn't satisfy today's prompts.
Sarah also went rogue today. Thanks, Sarah!
