2017 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 25

For today’s prompt, write a remix poem. I love how music artists will remix each other’s (and their own) songs. Do that today with one of your poems. For the chapbook challenge, try remixing one of your poems from earlier in the month.

Here’s my attempt at a Remix Poem:

“& on repeat”

& she builds the tallest tower
before he knocks the tower down
because he wants to show power
over her & her new tower
as she celebrates the hour
after knocking his tower down
& she builds the tallest tower
before he knocks her tower down

    Disjunctive Thinking

    “I believe in the ethos of the remix, like Andy Warhol making a painting of a Campbell’s soup label.” ~ Mike Posner

    Andy Warhol love to do remix.
    For instance, Campbell’s Soup cans.
    Disjunctive thinking. Unlike linking.
    Unexpected, and not in the plans…

    …like, Magna Doodle, Rubik’s Cube and
    Simon, and also, Nerf Balls.
    Like an old 8-track, on looking back,
    Rock’Em Sock ‘Em Robots decked the halls,

    but what of halls? Festooned, bedecked and
    filled with some avant-garde art.
    Unlike linking. Disjunctive thinking.
    Retro chic is hip and cool and smart.

    (At least, by those who are into it.)
    Belief in remix ethos.
    On looking back, like an old 8-track,
    recombination is grandiose.

    Remix of Prompt 22 limerick

    I spend all my days in the shade
    The darkness became my domain
    One bite to my neck
    I became a wreck
    Now bloodlust is all that remains.

    Detour

    Construction on the highway?
    Put the brakes on life’s fast lane!
    Such unplanned detour byway,
    Construction on the highway.
    Offer a simple roadway;
    Come journey through smooth terrain.
    Construction on the highway?
    Put the brakes on life’s fast lane!
