truly, my brain says do it
Today is the second day of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2020!
Our (optional) prompt for the day takes a leaf from Schuyler’s book, as it were, and asks you to write a poem about a specific place — a particular house or store or school or office. Try to incorporate concrete details, like street names, distances (“three and a half blocks from the post office”), the types of trees or flowers, the color of the shirts on the people you remember there. Little details like this can really help the reader imagine not only the place, but its mood – and can take your poem to weird and wild places.
This Old House
This old house was once brand new Newer than the other four Fourth on the Drive Drive into a garage that was Was then storage and then playroom Playroom became Master bedroom Rooms of all different sizes and shapes Shapes that are hard to decorate Decorated with old knotty pine Pine that is dark and old Old and crumbling underneath Underneath the invisible baseboards Baseboards that should have been placed Placed to keep the drafts and dust out Out with the old Old and worn Worn down Down in history
