OULIPOST #9: HEADLINES (VARIATION OF JEAN QUEVAL’S “CENT ONS”)
Compose a poem whose body is sourced from article headlines in your newspaper.
I pulled the headlines from today's Boston Globe and also pulled some pull out text and sub-headlines throughout the paper. I also cut some headlines up, just used one word or two or partial phrases.
It was quite fun and surprising and even flows!
Legacy of a dreamer
With tributes and salutes
Key flaw laid to rest
Honors unity in death
With fascination of the unknown
Our yearning for mystery and surprise
A great human being...
Various headlines. The Boston Globe. 9 Apr 2014. All sections. Print and web.
