Today, the challenge is to write a poem that, incorporates wild, surreal images. Try to play around with writing that doesn’t make formal sense, but which engages all the senses and involves dream-logic.
I have tried to combine surrealism with ‘progressive’ form of poetry.
The first line has exactly 11 words,
The second line has exactly 10 words
The third line has exactly 9 words
And so on till 11th line that has just one word
Poem: A surrealist dream
Dinosaurs chased by fishes that rode away on life size ants
The woman saw, while drying her snakes; hair, now called
Her head kept on tree, away from her torso,
The eyes on her hand, had another view
Elephant headed hummingbird, drowning whale in pond
Monkeys hunted for grass eating lions
A man galloped himself; completely
What world she’s in
Gluing her head,
