Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides Blog
For people new to these challenges, I like to do “Two for Tuesday” prompts on Tuesdays. In that way, I get to pretend like I’m a DJ on a radio station. Here are the two prompts today:
- Write a concealed poem. Could be about a concealed weapon, concealing emotions, concealing intentions, etc. Cover it up and write about it.
- Write an unconcealed poem. Okay, take everything from the first prompt and uncover it. Reveal everything that’s hidden.
Completed on day 7
I loved this prompt – had loads of ideas swimming around my head. What I finally wrote was semi autobiographical and was an experience I had once on a tube. The reveal was even better because I had no idea what was concealed and didn’t know until the end of the poem as I was still undecided.
Both poems have some amazing lines (you know when you write a stunner and think WOW!) and I have used clever word play in the title – I think I might perform part 1 or both next week at the SpeakEasy event.
