Seven months or so since my last post… do I still know how to do this?
Prompts! I need prompts.
Let’s see… looks like there’s a fresh set of 5 prompt words over on the site of Tyler Deal:
OK so ‘broadcast’ eh? That probably means throwing either a woman or a wide fishing net. A ‘safeguard’ must be one of those guys who ride in the back of a Brinks truck. To ‘whet’, I’m pretty sure, is to spit on a rock before grinding a knife sharp on it. And ‘ablaze’ and ‘chronic’ are obviously druggie language.
Now I just use the 5 words in a poem or something.
Exhausted and famished from broadcasting all day long
I decided to call up a friend and to break out my bong
My friend soon arrived in his huge, boxy automobile
For he is a safeguard against those who would steal
He is funny
Too. When he came into my house he said, “Well, to what have you been up?”
I said, “Catching some fish on which for us to sup.”
“So I thought,” he grinned, and from his Brinks duffel, he took a long, thin knife and a square, gray stone.
I watched as he whetted and sharpened – so sharp! there would be nary a bone.
While he made fillets
I set chronic ablaze
The fish got fried
And so did I
Then I dined with my friend
