She's all that gold and glitter
At the mic. Sequined dress
Catches the moon just right.
She's all that gold and glitter,
And they throw tomatoes.
Spring for the exit now.
A woman has no place. Here.

This poem, #191 in the Poem Almost Everyday Project, strays from the writing the poem first thing aspect of my experiment because it was born out of a “poetry game” I play with students as a way into writing in poetic form. As a class, we determine the “rules” of the game: number of lines, syllables per line, the verb _______ in line ______ , the color _______ in line _______, a poetic device in line _______, and repeat lines _______ & _______.

These are the rules for this one:

  • 7 lines
  • 3 iambs per line
  • sprint in line 6
  • gold in line 1
  • a caesura in line 2
  • repeat lines 1 & 4
