Oulipost: Day 6

In spite of being the most accessible prompt so far, this one kind of did me in. I was starting to feel a little sick when I started attempting it and was full blown done with the world after 20 minutes to trying. Not too happy with this poem but I’m pushing through.

Prompt: Compose a poem using unintentional lines of iambic pentameter found in your newspaper.

Who we are/Who we were

Chicago is an engine powered by

Collaboration, creativity.

A love struck kind and geopolitics;

They all perform the tree pose as they take

A yoga class taught by a 12 year old.

There is a childlike innocence or whim

That help provide a solid framework for

The lens of who we were and who we are.
