We’re almost there. Let’s do this.
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Total (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 could include: “Total Madness,” “Total Victory,” “Totally Awesome,” and/or “Total Cereal.”
Remember: These prompts are just springboards; you have the freedom to jump in any direction you want. In other words, it’s more important to write a new poem than to stick to the prompt.
Here’s my attempt at a Total Blank Poem:
I’ve hit the wall
staring out windows
and losing track of time.
and swerving one way
before darting the other
Ready to tackle
my next project or maybe
