but with Jen back in town and the Byron Bay Writers Festival to renew our mojo, new collage poetry was created.
Because Nicky, the main character in my story Diary of the Future creates collage poetry, I have been aiming to create poems that relate to teenage life. So I created the following about a teenage party:
Hot new hook-ups
Touchy-feely french kiss
too much to drink
spirals out of control
Let your lips do the
The party is over
I didn't create the next one to be part of the teenage theme, but as I posted it to the blog, I realised that there was a natural progression in themes. Hee hee! Actually, I'd created the next one, because I was amazed at how many times the word 'pregnant' had turned up in my box of words. And 'pregnant and paranoid'? I just had to use that.
PREGNANT AND PARANOID
too stunned to speak
I'm hoping that this new spurt of collaging will result in a renewal in the desire to collage. As I said, I want a number of poems that will fit in with Diary of the Future, and with the news that lulu.com now has a printer in Australia, a combined anthology featuring poems from both Jen and I is a real possibility.
