Since the workshop, I have created 8 new collage poems.
And there was a reason why I excavated my dining room table last week. So I can collage and each poem can percolate exactly as long as it needs to...
A few years ago, I attempted a 365 days of collage poetry challenge - it lasted a month before it fizzled out. But there were a couple of things that hampered the project.
1. My Virgo partner - who wasn't very impressed by runaway words, cut outs and half-constructed poems everywhere.
2. my beautiful cat, Dorkus, who was impressed and liked to contribute - in not always a constructive way.
Have scissors, will cut.
Have glue, will stick.
Have imagination, will create.
Have life, will have fun.
With 8 or more poems in progress on the dining room table, I may re-commit to a 365 day challenge. I'll see how it goes over the next few weeks - stay tuned to see what the bug may bring...
