How can you be so anomalous?
A shriveled-up peach so barbarous
With parentheses and crow’s feet
Like a Language Arts backbeat
A perimeter of fluffy hair
A TRESStle, a tussle; grey beware
I know you’ve screamed in mirror fights
Every little thing gonna be all right*
But my kid can’t draw you, blockhead
And my serenity has plummeted
So won’t you set the record straight?
Backtrack ten years, don’t hesitate.
Poetry Jam- Face the Facts
NaPoWriMo, Day 17-
Today’s prompt is an epistolary poem — a poem in the form of a letter. In particular, I challenge you to write a poem addressing an inanimate object — Dear Headache, Dear Goldfish Bowl, etc. But that’s not all. Try to include at least 4 of the below in your poem:
1) a song lyric- Every little thing gonna be all right*
2) a historical fact
3) an oddball adjective-noun combination (like red grass or loud silence)
4) a fruit- peach
5) the name of a street in your neighborhood- Serenity
6) a measure of distance- feet
