Writing a poem about writing a poem

Creative writing class assignment today! Professor gave us a writing prompt to start the assignment. “I look for this poem in…”

My classmates really enjoyed my poem as I read it aloud! They laughed at the end of almost every stanza! I love creative people 🤗 I hope you enjoy it too!

I look for this poem in…

The hallway of Dorothy Donahue hall it wasn’t there

but I found a frat boy eating a pear

I look for this poem in…

the spot near the vending machines

It was clearly nowhere near

but I saw Professor Woodman drinking beer

I look for this poem at the bus stop where

I found no poem, just smoggy air

I look for this poem on the bench

Where people sit, no poem

But some girl eating a banana split

I look for this poem watching squirrels

I found nothing but a guy doing bicep curls
