NYWC Prompt-A-Day

April is National Poetry Month, and to help you dig into NaPoWriMo (or whatever poem-a-day challenge you’ve taken on), NYWC brings you Prompt-a-Day. All month long we’ll feature the writing prompts that really get us going — morsels of inspiration from staff members, workshop leaders and participants, and even from some of our favorite poets and writers. So good luck, dear poets — and remember to check back tomorrow for another one! 

Almost everyone has a daily routine. Some days it varies but for the most part we get out of bed, go to school/work and then go back to bed to start all over again. Today’s prompt comes from  Ted Berrigan’s list poem 10 Things I do Everyday

wake up
smoke pot
see the cat
love my wife
think of Frank

eat lunch
make noises
sing songs
go out
dig the streets

go home for dinner
read the Post
make pee-pee
two kids
grin

read books
see my friends
get pissed-off
have a Pepsi
disappear

Make your own list poem of 10 things that you do everyday.
