PoMoSco Day 19

19 Apr

I have to laugh at the poem I wrote for this prompt. The instructions are: Choose a television program, podcast, or movie of at least 30 minutes in length. Transcribe what you hear. You won’t be able to keep up, and that’s the point. When completed, create a poem out of your transcribed words. You can delete — but not reorder — your text.

The poem you will read leapt out almost immediately. I tried for days to make something else work: The Colour of Sapphires.

Other set pieces:

Barbara C: American Family

Misky: The Basics

Tara Miner: how the world ends

E. Kristin Anderson: Powerful and Undeniable

Richard Walker: with splayed legs

Just a few, today.Tomorrow’s… well, I don’t know. Show up and we’ll see. Enjoy.
