Junk Drawer

 

 

 

This is the prompt:

  • First, find a song with which you are familiar – it could be a favorite song of yours, or one that just evokes memories of your past. Listen to the song and take notes as you do, without overthinking it or worrying about your notes making sense.
  • Next, rifle through the objects in your junk drawer – or wherever you keep loose odds and ends that don’t have a place otherwise. (Mine contains picture-hanging wire, stamps, rubber bands, and two unfinished wooden spoons I started whittling four years ago after taking a spoon-making class). On a separate page from your song-notes page, write about the objects in the drawer, for as long as you care to.
  • Now, bring your two pages of notes together and write a poem that weaves together your ideas and observations from both pages

    Click on the arrow on the album to hear the song.

      Thanks, Manja. It became a test of wills. Even my sister’s printer kept changing the arrangement, which seems impossible. I finally gave up and just made the measuring tape wavy as no matter how straight I got it, the printer would alter the straight line and put one or two letters out of line..one side or the other. So I decided it was just supposed to be that way and made the entire thing wavy..
