Magnetic Poetry: translucent desire

Posted by Katie L. Carroll on February 22, 2011 in Guest, Language, Magnetic Poetry, Writing |

The infamous magnetic poetry kit has been quiet of late (maybe because the winter has caused me to be something of a recluse and I haven’t invited anyone over lately). I’m hoping a new crop of words (a gift from my cousin) will spark the creativity of any future guests.

In the meantime, here’s a few lines of magnetic poetry that have been hanging out on my refrigerator:

  • beneath a translucent desire is fear genius & beauty (umm…I think I need more time to think about this one…it’s very deep)
  • black monkey chicken naked in the night (you always have to look out for the black monkey chicken…especially when it’s naked)
  • whisper bosom talk s sweet idea s of mind & shadow (and you should talk back to the whisper bosom with your trumpet bottom)
  • take me (like all good poetry this is short and to the point, but at the same time it has multiple layers…and it’s also what she said!)
  • spring is like the sweet flower that time leave s behind (a little too cliched for me, but I can appreciate the sentiment)

Thanks to all who contributed. And if you’re ever at my house, please take a few minutes to create your own piece of poetry.

    I've never heard of such a thing called magnetic poetry, care to elaborate?

    Nonetheless, I liked it. Very cool!

    Thanks for stopping by, T.D. Magnetic poetry is just a bunch of little magnets, each of which has a single word on it. The idea is to play around with words of your choosing until you come up with some type of sentence (and it doesn't even really have to make sense).

    Although the lack of punctuation is a bit of a pet peeve of mine, it can be really fun reading what people come up with.

    If you want to read more selections, you can click on the Magnetic Poetry label and see all the posts that have the poetic creations in them.
