Sometimes creativity is just about seeing what happens when you put certain things together.
Hazard a pixel of quiet. Buy it like a vowel. Tip it as a monetary unit into your drought. Be it a tankard or mound, existence is vague. But don't zero into a jacket. Zoom. Swerve. Spout legs for the parade where joy awaits you like a bikini top.

Author’s Note: I’ve always loved Scrabble. And I love it more for when I can put down a pretty word. So Bananagrams works well for me; it’s always fun to see what words I can spell. Which means the extension of turning it into poetry was pretty natural.
Often people get hung up on the meaning of poetry. But in actuality, sometimes poetry just starts with putting words next to each other. You shift them around. You paint with them. You see if the strangeness of the combinations evokes anything or not. The journey is sometimes more important than the poem itself. What do you think?
