NaPoWriMo 2020, Day 14, Under the influence.

Under the influence

Anger with
friends and foes

Lady Lazarus
rising from ashes

Hating you
all the while

Today’s optional prompt asks to think about your own inspirations and forebears (whether literary or otherwise). Specifically we're challenged today to write a poem that deals with the poems, poets, and other people who inspired you to write poems. These could be poems/poets/poeple that you strive to be like, or even poems, poets, and people that you strive not to be like. There are as many ways to go with this prompt as there are ways to be inspired.

The first three poets that popped into my mind were William Blake, Sylvia Plath and Wendy Cope.
