Friday Found Poetry

Here is the prompt I followed today, from the PoMoSco site

To earn the “On Demand” badge, start by coming up with an unlikely word combination. You can make up your own, choose words at random from a source text, or use a generator like the one at JimPix (http://jimpix.co.uk/words/random-username-generator.asp) to come up with your words. Examples:

  • Foolish Ninja
  • Calamitous Rock
  • Hurry Pork
  • Jugular Magnet

Visit Google (http://www.google.com) and do a search on your chosen word combination (no quotes around the terms)..

Google will display a list of pages, as well as short descriptions for each site. Compose a poem using only these page titles and short descriptions — do not click into the sites themselves to grab more text. You can use multiple pages of search results if necessary.

Post your poem to the site and cite your word combination at the bottom of your post.

My unlikely word combination turned out to be “unwitting methodical,” and the poem I wrote is titled “Surrogate.” It’s only the second draft, but I’m pretty happy with how it has developed so far.
