Writing Prompt Pit Stop: PoMoSco Challenge # 4 On Demand

Welcome to Writing Prompt Pit Stop! Day 4 of National Poetry Month finds the PoMoSco prompt asking us to complete a Conceptual Poem, which is much like the Oulipo inspired poems from last year’s project. I like my “On Demand” poem I came up with, as odd, as it is! You can read my poem, “Small Bird Theater,” here.

Here is the Day 4 prompt, On Demand:

Start by coming up with an unlikely word combination. You can make up your own, choose words at random from a source text, or use a generator like the one at JimPix (http://jimpix.co.uk/words/random-username-generator.asp) to come up with your words. Examples:

  • Foolish Ninja
  • Calamitous Rock
  • Hurry Pork
  • Jugular Magnet

Visit Google (http://www.google.com) and do a search on your chosen word combination (no quotes around the terms).

Google will display a list of pages, as well as short descriptions for each site. Compose a poem using only these page titles and short descriptions — do not click into the sites themselves to grab more text. You can use multiple pages of search results if necessary.
