napowrimo poem 14: what is this togetherness?

prompt: write a poem in which every sentence, except for the last one, is in the form of a question.

i feel very together in my life right now. the virgo influenced poetry of it:

is the detritus bagged
& stacked out in the alley
is the compost tucked
deep in backyard bins

are the clothes all clean
& folded & stored
is the walk in my bones
the clay mask off my skin

was the book by the bed
consumed all the whole day
is the work on my table
my joy beyond wealth

is a feast all prepped
from the earth & the sea
these are sunday songs
this is loving myself

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your uprising against the forces of darkness has got to do more than say "no." A fierce, primal yes should be at the heart of your crusade. (rob brezny, long ago)
