Day Twenty-six, Tupelo Press 30/30 Project


Tupelo Press still has a few openings for September’s 30-30 challenge. Leave a comment or email me for contact info.

“Something Lost, Something Trivial” is among the Day Twenty-six offerings of the Tupelo Press 30/30 Project (9 poets have agreed to write 30 poems apiece in 30 days, to raise funds for Tupelo Press, a non-profit literary publisher). Many thanks to Darryl Williams who sponsored and provided the title.

Even though no more title sponsorships remain, you can still contribute to Tupelo Press! Every bit helps (even a dollar or two), and I’ve some other sponsorship opportunities, with corresponding incentives, listed here.

If you’re so inclined, please visit the 30/30 blog at: Donate to Tupelo. Scroll down to “Is this donation in honor of a 30/30 poet?” and select my name, “Robert Okaji,” from the pull down so that Tupelo knows to credit the donation to me. And please let me know so that I may send a thank you and incentive gift your way.

Tomorrow’s poem is titled “His Softness,” thanks to the kindness and generosity of Sarah Rivera.

Thank you for your support! Only 4 poems to go!

  1. There are memories I don’t often visit. Those times never reached this point, but they came oh, so close, near the end. This took me there, and brought tears. Now for thoughts of better times. Thank you.
