Hello friends! It's a hectic day around here, still messing with trying to effect repairs on my house and whatnot, but I cannot fail you! Today's List is taken from a volume of poems by Michael McClure entitled September Blackberries. You'll forgive me if I am less informative than usual this week, but I urge you to Google Michael McClure to find out more about him!
What we do here is to use at least 3 of the 20 words from the list provided in a new original poem of our own. Then just link up, visit others, and then loudly complain about being busy, so busy! :-p
And now, your List:
Extra bonus word: "Meat." He uses it repeatedly in this collection, and normally I always include oft-repeated words, but 'meat' just didn't seem very poetic to me. However, you may use it if you like, for meaty extra credit.
When it comes to meat and potatoes your list is the meat of the meal as is your poetry. One must chew many times and savor the flavor. I will Google McClure and I will try to return. Thank you for providing this even though your life is in construction and repair mode Shay. 🌻ReplyDelete
An unexpected Friday 55 just happened to materialize out of these potent little words, almost as I read them, so thanks again for the inspiration Shay, and for the effort you make in these lists.ReplyDelete
I will "meat" the challenge!ReplyDelete
I will be back. "Wolves" are calling my name. Smiles. May not make it till tomorrow though.ReplyDelete
Ha, read a couple of McClure's poems and dashed off a quick one just before going out......he has an interesting voice, in his work.ReplyDelete
Ready to post my poem in a few .... had to take liberties with a few of your challenging words ... but enjoyed the exercise. Cheers!ReplyDelete
