As we near the end of the month, I hope you'll continue to play around with your poems in May and beyond. To help that process, here's my one simple rule for revising your poetry. May it help you as you further the creation process.
For today's prompt, take the phrase "(blank) World," 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: "Theme Park World," "Poeming World," and/or "Brave New World." Have fun putting the world in a poem.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

plastic in the landfill
& plastic in the sea
& plastic in the air
& suffocating me
