Hello friends, it's me with your weekly word list poetry prompt. This time our list is from the very strange, very amazing Russell Edson.
"Called the “godfather of the prose poem in America,” Russell Edson’s idiosyncratic body of work is populated with strange and intriguing figures: a woman fights a tree, a mother serves ape; in the poem “ Let Us Consider,” there’s a “farmer who makes his straw hat his sweetheart” and an “old woman who makes a floor lamp her son.”
Just use at least 3 of the 20 words provided to write a poem of any style or length, then link up, visit others, and have fun! (I see you, you couple of people who link but never visit anyone.)
Those quoted lines do sound fascinating!! Another wonderful poet feature and word list Shay!! As you can see I am on my phone and at the moment I am Burtt...LOLReplyDelete
Edson does tales of the unexpected! From this list a carnivore emerged - unexpectedly too.ReplyDelete
Another poet I'm not familiar with, but a fascinating choice and some great words to work with. I'll be back if anything surfaces.ReplyDelete
