Today’s prompt from the Found Poetry Review’s Oulipost Project: Antonymy!
“In Oulipian usage, antonymy means the replacement of a designated element by its opposite. Each word is replaced by its opposite, when one exists (black/white) or by an alternative suggesting antonymy (a/the, and/or, glass/wood)..“
I used passages from an article about a brush fire that happened near my house. I like the extraterrestrial and existential direction this poem took. Probably my two favorite directions, come to think of it.
Mist falling to the nowhere
Nowhere aliens and water wholes
forgetting to their conclusions under
The last calm under the water
went to an alien which ignored
not seeing the mist which
disappeared, not located nowhere
in the Inhabited City.
The mist was doubtfully
dislocated exactly -600 inches
inside of Ground Bottom Highway
in Generous Highlands.
After not being started, the
water did not involve one or
two inches of water:
an unapparent true.
