Writing Exercise #54

Yesterday and today have been a whirlwind. I'm currently in NYC for the PEN International Voices Festival. I am badly sunburned, I am fatigued and I am cranky. That said, I am annoyed at falling beyond on my exercises. So let's just get to it.

Write a poem about the night you were conceived. Wikepedia will be helpful in figuring out what the world was like at the time. Use this calculator to figure out when it happened: http://www.paulsadowski.com/Birthday.asp

Use that juicy imagination of yours. GO BIG.
