Why 10,000 Poems?

 

mike bell

Since November ’15 I have been producing at least one poem a day – even with a few life f*ck-ups on the way.

My ambition is to use this commitment as one method of holding off as much cognitive decline as possible associated with my Parkinson’s diagnosis, as well as a way of raising some awareness about living with long-term debilitation.

By the time I publish poem #10,000, I should be in my eighties, but, by deduction, also fairly neurologically together.

To date, I have published 1,745+ poems, 8,000+ to go..
