  1. Beverly King Says:

    That Four of Swords feels like rest taken not so much out of choice but out of exhaustion. Your poem captures it well.

  2. Fun! How did you choose the extra prompts?

    • JJ Says:

      They are “word tickets” Chloe. As explained in the book Poemcrazy by Susan Wooldridge, you use a roll of paper “Admit One” theatre tickets, and cut and paste words from magazines and such. Then do a sort of lucky dip when you want to write a poem.

      I made mine back in 2004, and I was buying books for the adult library I worked in at the time, so had lots of publisher’s catalogues to cut and paste from. Every night after work I would cut and paste a bunch and eventually did up 1,000 of them. I augment them with another box of paint chip colours which often have interesting names too. I use decorative papier maché boxes from the dollar store to store them in.

      Susan Wooldridge is a teacher, and started doing this with school children in underprivileged areas, to try and spark an interest in poetry.
