In the Moment Poetry is simply just that: a poem written at a particular moment that is inspired by the present, with little to no post-editing applied.
This poem was written on March 16th:
Sitting in a cafe—
listening to M83’s ‘Do It’
defines the moment that I sip a cup
and decide whether to read Catcher in the Rye
or current events on the ‘net.
Kids line up, dividing the room—
I feel like a writer
sitting with my book and computer.
I place a book on the table
but never read it.
Living the life.
