Not Throwin’ Away My Shot: Day 24/30 #NationalPoetryMonth

I have been wanting to try my hand at writing a blackout poem this month and haven’t been able to find a text that suits me. As I sat down to write today I thought about getting dose number two and my mind went to the famous Hamilton song: Not Throwin’ Away My Shot. While I know the song has been used by many as a kind of theme song for getting vaccinated, I thought I’d start simple and use this song to capture some of my thoughts about getting my second shot and my hopes for life after the two week waiting period. My draft poem is above and my blackout process is below.
