If you haven’t seen it, I had a poem published over at Kind Over Matter this past weekend. Click here to read it.
For this week’s prompt, write a poem of industry. Industry sounds like a big term, but it probably carries different connotations for different folks. For instance, some people might immediately think of the music industry (or mortgage industry), others may think of smokestacks, and some may think of industrious people they know or industrial-sized containers of food. Whatever industry means to you, try capturing (or conveying) it in a poem.
Write great fiction!
Here’s my attempt at an Industry Poem:
“industry vs. inferiority”
bob draws an elephant
& tom draws a zebra
bob draws a lot of praise
& tom draws a critique
bob draws with gray crayons
& tom draws black & white
