Compose a poem using unintentional lines of iambic pentameter found in your newspaper.
Well, I just went through all my favorite sections of the paper..Travel, Arts, Ideas and the front page and started skimming and counting. I pulled several quotes from several articles...I may have used a few titles because they were the best pentameter. I read some weird articles too like one on traffic. Wow...
Portrait of a city in taxi ridesMorning has broken, like the first morning.
Until recently, there was a problem
There was no one to dive into it
But such a technique has been elusive
At the risk of sounding like a dingbatter
A 24-hour city, we are not.
The clump of marsh was still mesmerizing
Last April I returned to the same spot
Echoes of the past rescued from silence
There have been many gains since the genocide.
