Napowrimo 2018 – Day 3

At NaPoWriMo.net, we have been encouraged to make a list poem of “made up titles”. Here’s mine:

A List Poem of Imagined Movie Titles Based on Stuff Strewn Across My Desk

Adventure Pics like “My Blue Pen” are rarely ever shown
‘Cause most folk prefer comedies like “Staplers That I’ve Known”
“My Calculator Glows with Glee” is showing all this week:
(a foreign film with subtitles, but all the talk is Greek)
“Green Highlighter”: a thriller film will keep you up at night
but if you prefer romance, then see “Paper Sheets of White”
My fav’rite flick I’ve seen all year is “Six Line Telephone”
it is a documentary that stars one Sly Stallone
Of course, there is “My Desk’s a Mess” – a true biography
you wonder who it is about? Well clearly, it’s ’bout Me!

Highlighters

a map
marked with highlighters:
some areas marked with red
others shaded blue
and if you squint just right
so that the colors merge together
we see one nation
highlighted the tone of bruise
and I wish and hope
that one day
healing might begin
between the factions

~~

another poem inspired by office supplies…but hopefully a deeper meaning emerges.

(Also, of course, inspired by yesterday’s election in the USA.)
