Last week, the prompt was focused on writing a world-building poem, and that's inspired this week's prompt.
For today's prompt, let's write a "different way of seeing the world" poem. This could be in response to your world-building poem, for sure, but it could also be about the actual world we're living in. Think about how you usually view the world and try viewing it through a different lens. What do you see? What do you feel? Write it down.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

& i am sure he
thinks of something
