Today we are taking inspiration from South African poet, Douglas Livingstone, in particular his poem, Conversation with a Giraffe at Dusk in a Zoo. For this challenge, I would like you to select an animal, portrait, statue or any suitable companion of conversation that can be successfully addressed in Apostrophe.
There are a few rules to this challenge:
- Use "second person" narrative
- The entire poem should consist of the conversation, so any references to setting, characterization etc must be included in the words spoken.
- It may be a monologue or dialogue.
- Colloquial language, slang, informal speech is encouraged.
Have fun with this one, friends. Once you have written a new poem for this challenge please link it up below and let's engage in conversations with our fellow poets.
