Have you ever heard people say they need a vacation to recover from their vacation? Perhaps your Memorial Day Weekend brought you some of that experience or maybe you have experienced it in the past? This week, write poems about the idea of “too much vacation” even if you are eagerly anticipating one. Funny, sad, sarcastic, hopeful, any tone can play.

Good luck to all who try it, please drop in next week…

All manuscripts must be accompanied by a SASE (self-addressed, stamped envelope) or IRCs (international reply coupons) with sufficient postage for their return or they will be placed in the trash.
