An example of making a list poem, by copying down each headline in the A section of the local newspaper as encountered in sequence.  I also like lists and particularly enjoy finding abandoned lists at the grocery store – like the individuality of the handwritten characteristics of these, of the underlinings, crossings out, the emphases… fun stuff?  🙂

One Response to “Sun headlines, Section A…”

  1. Deborah Barlow Says:

    The juxtapositions of this poetic approach are usually very surprising and fresh. One of William Stafford’s poems, “Things I Learned Last Week” uses a similar approach and couples these two images:

    Ants, when they meet each other,
    usually pass on the right.

    Sometimes you can open a sticky
    door with your elbow.

    I especially like your line, “Mystery marriage left ‘bride’ baffled.”
