It’s time for that final two-for-Tuesday prompt of April. Regulars probably already know what the prompt is.
Here are the two prompts for today:
- Write a love poem. The poem could be about lovers, but also the love of family, love between friends, or even loving your job, chocolate, or music. Or…
- Write an anti-love poem. Maybe you’re a hater; that’s fine. We’ve got the anti-love poem prompt for you.
Revision doesn’t have to be a chore–something that should be done after the excitement of composing the first draft. Rather, it’s an extension of the creation process!
In the 48-minute tutorial video Re-creating Poetry: How to Revise Poems, poets will be inspired with several ways to re-create their poems with the help of seven revision filters that they can turn to again and again.
Here’s my attempt at a Love and/or Anti-love Poem:
“deal or no deal”
i’ll fold all the laundry
& put it away too
if i can only get
one more sweet kiss from you
