Circle poetry

2 12 2013

Circle words or phrases on an existing page of a novel or another piece of writing (it can be a photocopy of a page, which is what we did) and continue to make circles around the words so that it becomes clear what you circle. Then, you have a (usually incoherent and confusing) new poem!

Here is one I did that I tried to make coherent.

Love Song

I was waiting for it to open.
With the same eyes,
look at objects
Look in his eyes–
penetrating, shocking.
Give a little gasp.
My heart gives off perfume like a flower,
blowing up against the sky noisily.
