Day 22 [10:28-11:24 pm]
Here are the rules for the Golden Shovel: Take a line (or lines) from a poem you admire. Use each word in the line (or lines) as an end word in your poem. Keep the end words in order. Give credit to the poet who originally wrote the line (or lines). The new poem does not have to be about the same subject as the poem that offers the end words.
“you speak it speaking to you”
From “The Voice You Hear When Reading Silently” by Thomas Lux
The Voice In My Head
Listen. I’m talking to you.
Can’t you hear me speak?
What will it take for you to comprehend, to get it?
Mumbling words upon words, pretending to be speaking
in coherent and understandable language to…
to who? You.
