I'm rattled by this serial; how do I cancel the subscription? This rumble strip scene's always on loop. I pivot the car, but I’m not lost; I’m not trying to get my bearings; that was not my ghost in the burbs. I should know. I was never there, never where my eyes see; I’m merely dreaming up this American life.
d’Verse poetics prompt: Are you listening?
This shadorma was written for this week’s poetics prompt at d’Verse. Participants are to select at least two of the following ten podcast titles and include them in a poem:
- Articles of Interest: American Ivy
- I Was Never There
- Legacy of Speed
- Not Lost
- Reveal: After Ayotzinapa
- Rumble Strip
- This American Life
- Ghost in the Burbs
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
