For today’s prompt, take the phrase "Case (blank);" replace the blank with a word or phrase; make the new phrase the title of your poem; and then, write your poem. Possible titles include: "Case of Water," "Case in Point," "Case Study," and "Case of the Missing Person."

I hope everyone has a case of easy poeming today!

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 "Case (blank)" Poem:

“case of not sleeping again”

because you're on my mind again
from the end to the start of day
& i just want to be your man
because you're on my mind again
& i can't get to sleep again
when there's so much i want to say
because you're on my mind again
from the start to the end of day
