write what you don’t know: big tent poetry
My prompt for Big Tent Poetry this week is to write about something you don’t think you know how to write about. The example I gave was, “I want to write about the oil spill in the Gulf but don’t know how,” and maybe assign to “the thing” an extended metaphor. I have decided to give my own example a try.
Here’s my draft for this week’s “Come One, Come All” gathering. The poem is about the oil spill, of course, and nothing more. Nope. Nope. Nothing more. (Go see what everyone’s learning they have in them!)
