NaPoWriMo 2015 Day 11

From Chris:


To You.
by Walt Whitman
Let us twain walk aside from the rest;
Now we are together privately, do you discard ceremony,
Come! vouchsafe to me what has yet been vouchsafed to none—Tell me the whole story,
Tell me what you would not tell your brother, wife, husband, or physician.

Let us go then, you and I,
no, that’s not it…

how about…

Let us duo dynamically apart from the others;
Now you and I are alone together, do you toss away your mask,
Come! vouchsafe me harder than you have ever vouchsafed before — Give me your whole story,
Tell me the secrets you won’t tell your wife or your husband.
Tell me all of the secrets you won’t tell any other — I’ll write poems about them and publish them for the whole world to see.

From me:


Write a line of poetry, make two anagrams of that line, and now write a three stanza poem with the first lines of each stanza being the original line and the two anagram lines. Feel free to add more stanzas if you have more anagrams of your starting line that work.



anagram line 1

anagram line 2

Or in whatever order works.

So here is a line and some anagrams of the line:

a skeptical tulip
plateau lipstick
autistic alp kelp
a supplicate kilt
applause, lick tit
capital puke list
alack elitist pup
pup likes cattail
catapults like pi
alias Pickle Putt
Papal tickle-suit

So, at least three stanzas…

a skeptical tulip
asked if God exists
a messenger wearing a

Papal tickle suit
responded with laughs
and giggles and said his name was

alias Pickle Putt
then he laughed again
and left not answering the question

alias Pickle Putt
was an ass
that’s why he was put on the

capital puke list
but that wasn’t a problem
anymore because

the skeptical tulip
had found Buddha
and was no longer interested
