napowrimo #1:

napowrimo #1: let’s get it started, and, poet, can you spare a word?
Welcome to National Insanity Poetry Month! We’re going to start off easy.


The definition that I like best is “two disparate things yoked together to create new meaning.” Not sure where I heard that — might have been a professor, might have been a drunken poet … . Either way, it’s an apt description!

Right now, at this very minute, list five things in front of you. In front of you being a relative term: on your desk, on your arm, out your window … . Choose the two most disparate things and yoke them together into a fabulous metaphor. Now, use it in a poem.
