Poetry Fishbowl Report for May 5, 2020

Our theme this time was "How did I end up in charge?" I wrote from 12:45 PM to 6:15 AM, so about 15 hours 30 minutes accounting for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 7 poems on Tuesday and another 14 later.

Participation was similar, with 16 comments on LiveJournal and another 51 on Dreamwidth. A total of 19 people sent prompts. There were no new prompters.
