So after much messing about, here is the poem for NaPoWriMo. The prompt was to take the first page of a book and edit it down to the bare bones to make a poem.. Poetry from subtraction. A sort of found poem, I think. Anyway, I chose the first page of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy because it is awesome and should be chosen for everything.
‘And the academy award for best actor goes to Hitchhiker’s.’
‘And the winner of this year’s Celebrity Big Brother is Hitchhiker’s.’
I think two is enough. Here it is.
You always lose things.
One day it will be your mind.
You’ll never lose me.
