Redacted Poetry Experiment On Brad Gooch's Queer Lust Poem "Words to be Broadcast over Eagle’s Nest Sound System –I"
I had fun again this week, but I should warn you that Gooch's original poem isn't necessarily G-Rated...
Here's the original poem if you haven't read it before. It's something of a prose poem meets stream of consciousness.
Anyway, I gave myself these rules for the experiment:
The last line only has five words, so I wrote five poems, each with 27 words.
I tried to force a narrative with the titles and the poem formatting so it's not so aggressively stream of consciousness, and I might have made it a lot more negative than I had intended going into it.
But anyway, here's what came out of that.
1. A Hopeful Encounter
2. Denial Denial Denial
3. In Too Far
4. Stuck For Good
