Today’s prompt from the Found Poetry Review’s Oulipost Project: Confabulation!
“Craft a conversation poem using “he said/she said” quotes that you find in newspaper articles.“
I used quotes from Chris Christie in two different articles to make something offensive. It’s not really a conversation so much as an anecdote, but…it just sort of presented itself and it was hard to tell it no.
I think cancer research is really important.
I came home and told my children about it.
They had a good laugh.
