Monday, July 25, 2012 Poetry Prompt…
Choose a clichéd phrase (“fit as a fiddle,” “think out of the box,” “running on empty,” etc.) and turn it around. Use the new meaning created by this reversal to fuel a poetic meditation.
Here is my response to the “So Cliche” prompt…
A Piece of My Mind
I gave him a piece of my mind
My mind should be at peace
But now, only in pieces.
The pièce de résistance
was that he never heard it
