worlds and states
sex in a stream
ones and O’s
of the spring
Submitted as part of “National/Global Poetry Writing Month” (#NaPoWriMo #GloPoWriMo).
Today’s prompt: Day Twelve: “I’m calling this one “Past and Future.” This prompt challenges you to write a poem using at least one word/concept/idea from each of two specialty dictionaries: Lempriere’s Classical Dictionary and the Historical Dictionary of Science Fiction. A hat tip to Cathy Park Hong for a tweet that pointed me to the science fiction dictionary and to Hoa Nguyen for introducing me to the Classical Dictionary.”
Author’s Note: My inspiration for this poem came from (i) “Goniädes, nymphs in the neighbourhood of the river Cytherus” and (ii) Cyborg (n. 1960) “a living organism whose body has been modified to include both biological and mechanical components.”
