Poetry Workshop

Rhythmic poetry exercise, using word association from the poetry workshop from the shiiku._community with imanwest_ at Strange Brew, Bristol.

I tried my best to follow the rhythm. However, I didn’t get to quite write these on the beat. I did like some of the ideas that came out of this week’s workshop, and I thought one of the poems is worth sharing!


  1. Alien
  2. Contact
  3. Friend
  4. Green
  5. Lonely
  6. Meditation
  7. Phone
  8. Solitude
  9. Space
  10. Thought
  11. Trails


Space between when contacts are all I have.
Aliens are the new people that, as an adult, I call friends.
My phone and text well are all I have left.

Why be lonely when I can mediate?
Why have a thought when I can chat instead?

My phone suggests that perhaps this is not a phase.
