Today’s prompt from the Found Poetry Review’s Oulipost Project: Larding!
“Aka ‘line stretching.’ From your newspaper text, pick two sentences. Add a new sentence between the first two; then two sentences in the new intervals that have become available; and continue to add sentences until the passage has attained the length desired. The supplementary sentences must either enrich the existing narrative or create a new narrative continuity.“
I don’t know how to introduce this one, so, I won’t. That one article was…amazing.
