2013 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 5

Standard

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:

  1. Write a concealed poem. Could be about a concealed weapon, concealing emotions, concealing intentions, etc. Cover it up and write about it.
  2. 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.
