NaPoWriMo Day 16: a renga sonnet

My attempt at combining the renga and sonnet forms, probably an affront to each.

Damp day

a chill, damp day:
lilac blossoms close

wet cat
hangs on the screen door —
the kettle whistles

cheeks flushed with anger,
they hate in whispers

the full moon
like the blotchy face
of one loved

needle on empty, GPS
searching for satellites

I totter through the packed bar —
where’s the damned bathroom?
