You know, I used to write a lot of poetry. A LOT. And I was really into forms - I even had a whole blog devoted to them at one time. But the thing with me and poetry is, it's never consistent. It comes and goes. For the last year or so I've been in a dry spell and haven't been writing any poetry, so I'm having to dig deep into the archives to find something to share.
For this week's tribute to National Poetry Month, I chose a fun form. It's called the Flarf.
What makes a Flarf both fun and easy is the fact you take your raw material from the internet, specifically a Google search. Simply use two unrelated terms, like "anarchy + tuna melt" or "beautiful + corpse" and piece together your poem by cutting and pasting from the search results page.
You can also write a Flarf based on your Twitter or Facebook feeds, but I chose the more traditional Google search. The terms I used were "kitten + apocalypse".
