Poetry Prompts

I struggle with these, unless I rip-off exercises from somewhere but here goes (again)

1 Write a poem that subverts or inverts or recombines cliched sayings and/or stereotypes

2 A poem using only X words (say 10 or 15 or 20) (a, an, the, and, but, or : don't count) over and over (every one must be used twice, preferably more... and of course the poem should say something

3 A poem using books, quarterly, chick, lit, courgette

4 The death of someone close but no death-words

enjoy, bleed
