For experienced April PAD Challengers, today's prompt will seem familiar. In fact, I kind of tipped my hand yesterday with my example poem of what today's Two-for-Tuesday prompt would be.

For today’s Two-for-Tuesday prompt:

  1. Write a love poem.
  2. Write an anti-love poem.

Re-create Your Poetry!

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:

“conversation”

the husband says,
i want your love

but the wife says,
you haven't been
taking what i've
been giving you

and the husband
quickly responds,
i want you love
the way i want

but that ain't love,
she says, no way
