This poetry writing prompt submitted by Carolyn Adams.
Write a set of 5 American Sentences in which each differently addresses the same specific topic. American Sentences were invented by Allen Ginsberg as a western interpretation of Japanese haiku. Whereas haiku employs specific syllable counts per each of the three lines, to total 17 syllables, American Sentences only require a total of 17 syllables. They can be any number of lines or short sentences, and can have any syllable count per line.
