Match Game

Standard

Today Miz Quickly asked us write the last line of poems matched to a list of titles created in an earlier prompt. I hadn’t done the homework, so I took her suggestion to use the titles of books, choosing the 15 best sellers in fiction on the New York Times list dated 8/16/15. Since I was already moving into Found Poetry territory, I then made a list of 15 phrases from an on-line article in today’s New Republic entitled “Donald Trump Captures the Hearts of Young Republicans” by Suzy Khimm. Putting all the titles into a hat, I drew them out one-by-one and matched each with the corresponding phrase from the numbered list.

I was surprised to see the possibilities created here and I had fun, too.

Go Set a Watchman
…..
…..
still tugged at their hearts

Grey
…..
…..
hungry for red meat

The Girl on the Train
…..
…..
He’s about himself.

Thrill Me
…..
…..
a wall at the border

Siren’s Call
…..
…..
in a town built on spin

Circling the Sun
…..
…..
excited about the energy

All the Light We Cannot See
…..
…..
Tenacity

The Martian
…..
…..
a hunger across this

The Nightingale
…..
…..
leaving the door open

The Code of Conduct
…..
…..
He could get me there.

Badlands
…..
…..
by the end of the night

The English Spy
…..
…..
even in the heart

Never Die Alone
…..
…..
amazing and necessary

The Bourbon Kings
…..
…..
not sweet little babies

Luckiest Girl Alive
…..
…..
felt like liberation
