Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 354

A little later with the prompt than usual today. Been volunteering in the mornings this week and just ran out of time before I had to be out the door.

For today’s prompt, write an assembly poem. An assembly poem could be about a meeting (an assembly of people). Or an assembly poem could be about an assembly line or assembling something or whatever else you can assemble with your poetic minds.

Revision doesn’t have to be a chore–something that should be done after the excitement of composing the first draft. Rather, it’s an extension of the creation process!

In the 48-minute tutorial video Re-creating Poetry: How to Revise Poems, poets will be inspired with several ways to re-create their poems with the help of seven revision filters that they can turn to again and again.

Here’s my attempt at an Assembly poem:

“assembly line”

i take a metal cylinder
& place it in the machine
then i take one more
& place it in the machine
then i grab another one
& place it in the machine
then i repeat ten times a minute
& place it in the machine
then i repeat 600 times an hour
& place it in the machine
then i work 12 hours
& place it in the machine
then i work 6 days a week
& place it in the machine
then i sleep when i’m not working
& place it in the machine
then i make a lot of money
& place it in the machine
with an offer for a full-time job
to place in that machine
