Comments for December 22, 2012
"December 22, 2012" is actually the second poem by Sophie M. White I've read. She had one published in last year's December issue but I didn't review it.
December 22, 2012, if you're curious, is a Saturday. It's also a day that the un-named protagonist laments not paying more attention to. She (I'm assuming it's a she for the "climbing roses tattooed" on the spine) was too busy rebelling to pay attention to any warnings.
In sixteen lines Sophie White asks a stumper of a question. What would your reaction be if the world came to an end? How would you feel if the day had been accurately predicted for centuries and you had ignored it?
