From Nicole Homer's Prompt Blog, this week's prompt is to write a complete history of a relationship using ten meals you shared.
I read my outline poem this week, and realized
1.) I had really good visual and auditory memories of particular meals with a certain ex, but I couldn't remember what type of food we ever shared, even though we shared many meals over the years.
2.) I needed to use the prompt to write ten poems, each based around one meal.
May Nicole's prompt(s) give you such inspiration. And if they do, maybe contribute to her patreon.
Boston Poetry Slam's Social Media Curator, local badass, and celebrity bar patron, Cassandra De Alba was tonight's feature, so in honor of the release of her current chapbook about woodland horse cousins, you are presented with the following four word prompt. Do with it what you will:
Deer in the highlights.
Googling variations of "deer with highlights", "deer with different colored hair", "multi-colored fur deer" mostly give you the results of very human people with very boringly highlighted hair. The deer hairdressing industry seriously needs to boost its internet presence.
Fantasy writers such as JRR Tolkien, Terry Pratchett, George RR Martin, Frank L Baum, and whoever the person was who created Myst (it was two guys named Robyn and Rand Miller), created entire worlds replete with atlases, maps, family trees, and histories that predate the action in their stories/novels/games. In addition to the physical attributes of the world, they also construct elaborate mythologies and belief systems for their characters that aren't always similar to our own.
Create a mythology for a place that is important to you. It doesn't have to be some place real, but it can be. You can use your mythology to explain why it's not ok to leave trash in movie theaters, or how The Cantab basement got that particular bouquet.
