PoMoSco Day 2

02 Apr

Hello, everyone. So far, so good. For the second day we are instructed to create a cut-up poem. Cut out desired words or phrases from a source text, and put them in a paper bag or other container. Shake to mix up the words, then pull them out one by one. To create your poem, place the words on the table in the order you draw them from the container.

This exercise can go well, or not. I tried to keep control as much as possible (which is probably not the idea) by selecting carefully and not selecting much. I am not unhappy with Out a Dream.

Others you might enjoy:

Douglas Luman: Audubon Field Report: Hylatomas Pileatus

Rebecca Siegel: Southward

Nancy Chen Long (get used to seeing Nancy): Something Beyond the Barren Bogs

Andrea Janelle Dickens: Migration

Laurie Kolp: Something at Stake

Misky: A Blue Zephyr’s Call

See you tomorrow.

    …so I tried a second time, too, just to see what would happen. 😉
