Dark and Dirty: November 2014

The theme is dark and dirty! Create out of your sexy shadow. Create something that examines what parts of you that are kept underground, making out with Hades while your mom weeps through the winter. Write a burlesque featuring those misogynist literary characters you secretly want to do (HEATHCLIFF, anyone? raar). Create a recipe that consists entirely of different incarnations of butter and factory farm meat. Name it after your childhood best friend's spouse you once snogged during a U2 concert. Write a monologue from the point of view of that one extended family member that you never really loved, or maybe recount the seven deadly sins in a lullaby. Write flash fiction about your flasher phase. Do a shadow puppet show of your inner monologue. Turn your blackout alter ego into an anime villain with really bad balance and social skills but an amazing FDR impression (Depression FDR, not WWII FDR). Use the words FRECKLE, CHALLENGE, and BUNS.

"Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance." -Carl Sandburg
