Six Word Friday: How To

How One Might Write A Poem.

Prompt: How to. Let’s show ’em.

How do I do this, that thing?

Gnashing of teeth! Dramatic arm flinging!

Woe is me! What to do?

Agonize for days.( And forget, too.)

Obviously I have no marketable skills.

I pace and ponder. Worry. Wonder.

I fret. Self confidence is killed.

Hmm, wait. I do do this.

How though? The real problem is.

Talk to yourself. Write it down.

Add more words. Switch some around.

Try to make it sorta rhyme.

Attempt to make it keep time.

Google rhyming dictionary. Explore the thesaurus!

Edit. Refine. (Well, maybe next time.)
