National Poetry Month Day Fourteen

Prompt:  Write an eight line poem that uses the date of your birthday to determine how many words per line.  For instance 11/28/1972 translates to line 1 having one word, line 2 having 1 word, line 3 having 2 words, etc.  Zeros are wild cards, you choose the number of words.  Extra credit:  Reference an event that happened the year of your birth.

Poetic Justice

Anna Christina was hung in
In her pink dress she conquered limits
Lost in her endless emptiness, she is now an
Icon of American art
Her mystery and reality upset the abstract judges

I like Andrew Wyeth and this poem. (o^-')b
Anna Christina should stir our imagination for ever.
