A couple of days when I didn't 
manage to post for NaPoWriMo but today's prompt was very interesting: to take a line out of each of the 28 days' poems and re-make into a new poem. This, apparently, is a cento. A really good way to review what has been done, but quite a task to re-create, involving printing out all the poems into one document, then pencilling numbers on to lines, and lastly considering the order.  Phew! 
Here's the first stanza of the end result:

Please do tell me what you think.
I am looking for the whys and wherefores
how our bodies were not our own
smiling eyes and all,
like the others who are that way disposed,
it is a lie that the angels are going to surrender...
