Lost and Found Workshop
Dredging through the rainy city towards Kim by the Sea, sudden burst of sunshine as soon as I’m inside! The lost and found workshop was under way. First exercise was to create a found poem from a newspaper/magazine article. I had a Marie Claire article about how dating younger men had made life ‘fun’. To paraphrase.
I took all the words that were associated with ‘the battle of the sexes’ and deleted the rest:
Believe vexed insomnia
Dredge the depths
Limited and squirming
(Nothing with a chromosome
A policy decision
Date on a birth certificate)
There’s no going completely back.
I’ve a few other pieces that are a bit more shaped which I’ll try and bash together for Stirred tomorrow!
- Poem: The CopperWing (beccaaudra.wordpress.com)
- Poem from phone scraps (mostlynocturnalscribbler.wordpress.com)
