Hope you all had a nice weekend. Mine went way too quickly 🙂
Today I have for you a question poem. I first found this form during PoMoSco, a poetry challenge set in April by Found Poetry Review. The challenge is like OctoPoMo, but uses found poetry challenges. Found poetry is using a found text such as receipts, lists, garbage mail, etc. and fashion a poem out of it.
Were you playing with knowledge?
I know that you live there part time,
but does it feel like home to you?
Did you change in any way?
How do you know when you’ve reached the end?
For this poem, I used an interview I found in The Millions called “Not Just a Riddle to be Solved: The Millions Interview Anne Beattie.” I used Scripts & Tools to find all the questions throughout the text, and then used an example from “Top Ten Question Poems” from Tweetspeak Poetry.
Quite a process, but so much fun.
Don’t forget to head over to OctoPoWriMo and read all the wondrous poetry, all in one place!
