That’s a monkey business here…
Today I am using a prompt @FrauPaulchen has used in one of her #frapalymo. Unfortunately, I cannot find it but we were meant to take a poem we like and write down all the nouns, verbs and adverbs used. Then we created a new poem out of the chosen words.
Today I chose Sylvia Plath’s Doomsday, but I cheated a little and did not take all the words. These are the words I will be using:
idiot bird leaps drunken leans broken universal clock: hour crowed thirteens. stages fall apart scenes actors halt shock: idiot bird leaps drunken leans. Streets crack ravines doomstruck city crumbles block block: hour crowed thirteens. glass flies smithereens; relics put hock: idiot bird leaps leans. monkey’s wrench blasted machines; thought hear holy cock: hour crowed thirteens. ask end means, calculate stock: idiot bird leaps leans hour crowed thirteens.
I have also used the “Cut Up Machine” on Language is a Virus to get a different order of the words. They gave me this:
monkey’s thirteens. leans wrench idiot crack thirteens. drunken broken stock: put blasted crumbles crowed leaps bird drunken smithereens; crumbles doomstruck leaps idiot crowed leaps stages thirteens. end holy city machines; means, means, bird monkey’s end drunken thirteens. actors smithereens; hour monkey’s ask calculate thirteens. thought idiot flies crowed universal leans actors cock: leans crowed universal leaps cock: actors apart end hear leaps Streets crowed idiot relics drunken
Here is what I made of it:
