I tried a Random Word poem, inspired by Margaret Simon. I chose the book That sounds like Fun : the Joys of Being an Amateur, the Power of Falling in Love, and Why you Need a Hobby by Annie F. Downs. My five random words are in bold.


Hangriness put me at one 
with the sizzling churros –
my heretical answer 
to workday stress comfort food, 
deep-fried flavor 
flourishing in the heat 
hilarious irony of contrast.

  1. I have got to try this form! I am loving your poem from that very first word, “Hangriness.” Also love thinking of churros as a “heretical” answer to workday stress. Those things are insanely delicious. As is this poem.
