2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 5

Publish date:

Today's prompt comes from Amanda Laughtland.

Here's Amanda's prompt: Write a text message poem. Compose a poem in several short sections inspired by the compression of text messages. The poem might have one speaker or many speakers.

Robert's attempt at a text message poem:

"Don't text and drive"

I'm here. Where are you?

By here, I mean Taco Bell.


I'm ordering. Without you.

Seriously. Where are you?

It's been like 5 minutes, man. C'mon.

Oh wait. I see you pulling up.
