Joe Milazzo: two poems from homeopathy for the singularity

in continuing our poetry month extravaganza, today (day 3!) we are featuring two new poems by dallas-based poet Joe Milazzo, #4 and #11 from homeopathy for the singularity, PLUS a delightfully self-aware writing prompt! Joe will be one of many excellent poets and artists visiting / reading / celebrating in Denton on April 22 for spideweb salon's POETRY PARTY - be sure to save the date so you don't miss out! His writing prompt for you today is this: write a poem which habitually reassures itself that it means what it says.
