1) To be abducted by aliens
2) To invent a wireless power bank for people
3) To spill all the bitterness I’ve bottled up from past lives
4) To kick in a double glazed window
5) To pretend I don’t think
6) To double kick in a glazed window

The prompt at napowrimo.net: Today, I challenge you to write a poem that uses the form of a list to defamiliarize the mundane.
Funny! Love the list
And you played with an old prompt of playing with words too. Love this!
The prompts linger longer in my head than their assigned day sometimes 🙂
Which I find great, as I enjoy reading your poems and finding ‘old’ reminders!

Really really intriguing. Love the structure.
Thank you so much, it’s great to see the poem through your eyes.
Congratulations Angela on being the featured participant!
Thank you! It’s amazing. And a huge honour.
Uuuuu! 😮 This is amazing. I wish that all the people read this.
Being featured poem today might help 😉
So glad you got featured with this one! I haven’t read any other today yet but I know they got it right. Cin cin!
Thank you! My plan for now is to go out, have a coffee, write for todays prompt and following the links in your poem fom yesterday. Slowly, so that I get to savour each person you refer to.
Yeahh! I still have to go through my comments but I saw that you were happy with the post. And now I’m happy to hear you’ll look through the links. MD Kerr’s website has been down though, sadly. She is on holidays. I hope it’s fixed soon.
Congrats on your selection as featured poet! (K)
I wrote a comment yesterday that seems to have been deleted or maybe never posted by WordPress….I think that’s a lot of the problem with the seeming scarcity of comments. The gist of what I asked was where to find the aliens…because I know a few people I’d like them to abduct! (K)

Lol This really is brilliant and so deserving of being featured Angela – how wonderful your piece has been recognised, I’m thrilled for you! I almost yelled out “Ow!” out loud when I read the bit about kicking in the double glazed window. I intend to binge read all of your earlier poems over the weekend too 😀
hey Angela, great to read you again. let me know when you nab that alien!
