Day 25: Write a poem that includes all of the following words: pistachio, ink, pebble, weather, varnish.

The summer I met my stepfather I:

was just turned twenty

ate every pistachio in the house out of the
huge bags he bought from the commissary
like a foraging bear

became a pebble in everyone's shoe that
spilled ink and called it a life aspiration

was a slow hurricane that stripped the very varnish
off the furniture, by laying around, destroying everything

was a hell of a thing to weather

would be a bridesmaid in just two years

megwrites: Grace Park. Because yeah, she IS that awesome. (grace park)
Day 26: Gather some magazines/catalogs you don’t mind cutting up and spend 10 minutes flipping through the magazines/catalogs looking for words/sentences that spark your interest. Cut out the words as you go. When the 10 minutes are up, arrange the words to piece together a cut-up poem.

Light work for
the long stretch
only one could occupy the site in your mind
the design is executed for today's
flush work, it was built with
a line of striped banners
through an open window of wood
scorned as timber, beloved of the sky
spiraling upward to view
yet didactic wall panels are more insightful to us
