Weird #Na/GloPoWriMo Day 20-2019

Prompt: “And now for our optional prompt! Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that “talks.” What does that mean? Well, take a look at this poem by Diane Seuss. While it isn’t a monologue, it’s largely based in spoken language, interspersed with the speaker/narrator’s own responses and thoughts. Try to write a poem grounded in language as it is spoken – not necessarily the grand, dramatic speech of a monologue or play, but the messy, fractured, slangy way people speak in real life. You might incorporate overheard speech or a turn of phrase you heard once that stood out to you – the idea here is to get away from formally “poetic” speech and into the way language tends to work out loud.

well this is a weird one! Have you ever

written such a silly talking poem before?

neither have I -it’s bizarre- it’s like

A stream of consciousness….

do you have a conscience?

Mine is too overly active ..

Well sometimes it is…

I just looked up at the tv and

More bloody hate killings

Is there any other type of killing?

Oh right…. you want to argue…

Let’s change the subject

The cat is finally calm again

Gave her cbd oil drops

Not really sure this follows the rules

But just wanted to get it done
