NaPoWriMo #1 Shuffle

It's no secret love is a stranger with open arms
the sound of loneliness
is like phantom lovers at the corner house.
All I care about is the peace within.
Let's wrap it up. I'm nobody's moggy now.
Meet me in the morning by the streams of Doonah
where two island swans spoke with the angels
on the snowy path, dark and deep.
Thousands are sailing down on the moon.

napowrimo #1: shuffle a poem
# Put your iPod or iTunes (or other mp3 player) on shuffle. (If you don’t have a music player that shuffles, you can choose CD or album titles at random from your collection by writing several titles down on little slips of paper … works the same way.)
# Write down the first five titles that come up. No cheating allowed!
# Use all five titles to draft a new poem. They have to be used intact — you can interrupt them with punctuation, but you may not remove or change words. Shuffle away — the more eclectic your music collection, the better!
