Prompt: Found poetry – utilize a previous work and turn it into a poem
I used the first bit of my short story addendum titled “Promise to Milton” to construct this piece. “Promise to Milton” was part of a larger piece called “Life of a Schoolgirl” that came from a summer writing challenge which ultimately was the basis of my novel An Affair to Die For.
I did move some phrases around and add in some stuff so it’s not a true blacking out poem like I did with the Sherlock piece a while back. And this is a lot choppier than I’m used to.
Raising an eyebrow
Shook my head
Paradise on Monday morning?
Rules to defend sleep?
Wednesday evening dinner
In front of the TV
A lot of work
To perfect my Wednesday
This is what I’m talking about
So I’m a firm believer in reading the books before seeing the movie…apparently it goes unfulfilled most of the time. Today I watched bits and pieces of Divergent and had no idea what was going on. So what do I do? Like a person modern technological era, I go look it up on wikipedia and end up reading what the entire series is about. It sounds like a pretty good series, but I don’t think I’m going to read it since I’ve seen how much physical pain it puts a person through.
I’ve heard so much about Four and had high expectations for him. I was very disappointed. UGLY! Not to be shallow, but if he’s a lead, he better be good looking. I remember coming across something on my Tumblr about how there are so many attractive girls out there and guys not performing to that same level. Yeah…I’m starting to believe it. I’m also beginning to wonder about my sexuality…but anyways…not the point. I like guys, but some girls are just so F***ing pretty! It’s like a girl crush…which I think is becoming more common because most of my friends talk about their girl crushes and all have boyfriends. I’m glad that society is so much more accepting of this now than 100 years ago, but that’s the way it should be
