Over a Seascape

18 02 2009

I prefer beer.


The above is a wonderfully funny poem created via a collaboration between Kiron Fowler and Jessica Obernuefemann, two students I met and worked with on Monday while visiting the poetry classroom of the excellent Tom McCulley at Heartland Community College in order to discuss Structure & Surprise.  With its rising/falling, set-up/punch-line action, “Over a Seascape” is, of course, a fine example of the ironic structure.

Thanks, Kiron, Jessica, Tom, and all of Tom’s students–what a pleasure it was to get to discuss–and write!–poems with you!
