Question description

Poetry exercise: Sound Complements

  1. Make four lists of words down a page – including five each for a column of
    • adjectives
    • adverbs
    • nouns
    • verbs

But make sure each word describes a characteristic or behavior you would NOT normally associate with yourself.

Circle those that most interest or intrigue you.

2. Now, look for other words that have similar vowels or consonants to the key words you circled. (Don’t worry about whether you think these words “fit” those of you original list for now.)

3. Next, test out a few lines that use these words to envision yourself acting, wearing or doing something that is not normally how you envision yourself. (Remember that you don’t have to even be the same gender!)

4. Write a poem of 10-15 lines that pays attention to sound that describes this new “Not-You.”
