April 29, 2013: Suzanne Lummis

A prompt inspired by Suzanne Lummis’ essay defining the poem noir, forthcoming in Malpais Review:

Write a poem that begins “So the cops booked me on trumped up charges” and ends “I’m damned if I’ll talk”. Somewhere along the way the poet must incorporate one foreign phrase or word, or words.

Submitted by Suzanne Lummis from Los Angeles, California.
