- Late evenings of beer and dancing in wedged heels
- Eating McDonald’s or any kind of fast food
- Not reading or watching the news
- Wearing uncomfortable clothing
- Avoiding uncomfortable conversations
- Finishing a book that bores me
- Keeping quiet when bigots, racists or idiots share their opinions
- Staying in one-sided relationships
- Stopping my car-dancing because people can see me
- Not writing for my blog. (my bad)
I don’t know when I let poetry slip away from me. Or rather, I let myself slip away from poetry, but like most things that are at our cores, poetry was not done with me. I signed up as a PoMoSco — best explained by the folks who started it.
PoMoSco — short for Poetry Month Scouts — is the Found Poetry Review’s 2015 National Poetry Month project. This April, 213 poets representing 43 states and 12 countries are joining together as a troop to earn digital merit badges for completing experimental and found poetry prompts.
If you’d like to follow my month-long journey in found poetry, just follow your nose.
