April 13, 2020: Poetry Writing Prompt – Sandy Soli

This poetry writing prompt submitted by Sandy Soli:

Revision exercise. Use a poem you have not been pleased with, something from your file. Rework it from end to the beginning. Remove anything that does not feel essential. Beware of “so,” “very,” “the,” and “that.” These utility words do not enrich poem language well. Try the poem upside down to see if you like it better.

If you write a poem from this prompt, post it as a comment underneath the prompt in the Poetry Super Highway Facebook Group.
