Hem and Haw About NaNoWriMo

“Hem and Haw About NaNoWriMo”

A Poem by A. Catherine Noon

The Self: I have an idea for NaNo, but I don’t know about it…

Hem: Yes, write it!

Haw: No, dummy, that’s a horrible idea.

Hem: Really? I have an idea?

Haw: No, that’s not what I meant. Don’t write it.

Hem: Don’t write what?

Haw: The idea.

Hem: I thought you said there wasn’t an idea?

Haw: No, there’s no idea! No writing!

Hem: So the idea is that there’s no writing?

Haw: Oh my god, shut up!

Hem: I get it!! Write the idea about the Silence! Once upon a time…

Haw: No! Stop it! Don’t!

Hem: ~typity~ Did you say something?
