Instructions: Comment on this post to add a few lines of your own to contribute to the poem. You can comment as few or as many times as you would like – whatever you prefer. When somebody feels that the poem has reached a good stopping place, then that person can end the poem by posting a comment that says “(end)”. By the end of the week, we will have produced a complete poem that is varied, interesting, and compelling.
There’s no pressure – the comments will not be subject to the submission process for our print issues. This is an open forum for a poetic conversation – and we want YOU to participate!
