These three poets use Real Housewives and Lucky magazine as their source material.
Thanks to Marisa Crawford and Bitch Magazine for including Getting Lucky in this feature on feminist pop culture poetry!
Starting tomorrow I’ll be attempting NaPoWriMo again, that inhuman task that poets invented to inspire/hurt themselves. This means that during the month of April, I’ll once again pen one poem draft each day and post it here. This year, though, I’ll be deleting each draft after it’s up for a week. (I thought about a one-day shelf life but that seems fast.) So tune in if you wanna catch ‘em all.
Also, for my main prompt this year, I’ll be using a list of insane titles of Internet articles and essays, which I’ve been collecting for this purpose. So the poems might get weird.
In case anyone is interested. Day 1’s draft can be found here.
