Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 384

For today’s prompt, write a nope poem. A nope poem, I suppose, could be about saying no to a certain situation, person, or thing. Like saying nope to live concerts, people who like debating everything, or mushrooms. Or if you say nope to that premise, fine. Write your nope poem in the way you prefer, and I’m sure it’ll rock.

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 a Nope poem:

“Mushrooms”

It’s not the taste
so much as the consistency;
it’s like I’m biting into something–
a pasta of some sort maybe–
& then, yuck!

It’s like some squishy food
that my teeth to my squirm nerves
just cannot tolerate.

I’m sorry,
no,
nope,
uh uh,
no way
am I gonna eat anything
that’s got mushrooms in it!
