For the 2019 November PAD Chapbook Challenge, poets are tasked with writing a poem a day in the month of November before assembling a chapbook manuscript in the month of December. Today's prompt is to write a Remix Poem.
For today's prompt, write a remix poem. To do this, pick one (or more) of your poems from earlier this month, and remix it. Bend free verse into a poetic form (here's a list of 100 poetic forms). Or turn a poetic form into free verse. Or write a response poem.
Quick note on commenting: I'm not sure how fast the comments will approve. I'm hoping they'll display immediately, but if they go into moderation, just know that I'll approve each and every one (that's not spammy or offensive) as soon as I'm able.
Recreate Your Poetry!
Revision doesn’t have to be a chore—something that has to be done after the joy of the first draft. In fact, revision should be viewed as an enjoyable extension of the creation process—something that you want to experience after the joy of the first draft.
Learn the three rules of revision, seven revision filters, common excuses for avoiding revision (and how to overcome them), and more in this power-packed poetry revision tutorial.
Here’s my attempt at a Remix Poem:
My favorite tune, I suppose, could be
"Reach Out (I'll Be There)" or "Tennessee;"
"Possum Kingdom," "Soma," or maybe
a plethora of songs by G-B-V.
"Waltz in C Minor" by Chopin is great,
and there are few genres I truly hate:
I dig Willie Nelson and Patsy Cline,
and Bill Monroe sounds simply divine;
give me Nirvana and De La Soul,
"I'm Too Sexy" and "Head Like a Hole."
Picking one song is not easy to do;
I can't pick just one, how about you?
