Continue to experiment with Carmen Giménez Smith’s “Twenty-Two Poem Hacks” and rework your fourth poem.
The challenge this week is to do dramatic revision. More than just tweaking a line here or there, think about what you’re trying to express overall with the poem and do whatever it takes to get you closer to that emotion, feeling, concept, idea, scene, etc. Maybe you stray from the prompt, maybe it becomes more structured in terms of lines and stanzas, maybe it becomes more fluid and rhythmic, maybe the order of the lines change completely; just experiment and see what happens. Post your revision in the comments section below.
