Napowrimo: Day Seven Prompt

Here is the prompt I used for this, I found some scraps I has written earlier in the month and cobbled something together.


I used to be not there now I am trying to be present

I used to be biting my tongue now I am garrulous

I used to be unable to see the future now I am thinking of I will write in my forties

I used to be gullible now I am cynical

I am not tired of being so tired I feel like the opening to fight club

I am not tired of living a blade runner future of malfunctions

I am not tired of only being able to relate my life to miserable films

How will I feel when the next cloud bursts?

About Trio

This blog is for the trio of people behind Stirred to express the directions their work is taking. Stirred is a women's poetry night where women and men are encouraged to read pro-women poetry. The thinking behind this night originated with Anna Percy, who hosts the night. Her co-host Rebecca Audra Smith and the designer of posters and general photographer Sara Ellis complete the trio. Anna Percy's poetry is usually concerned with love, loss, losing your mind, the natural world and the surreal. She performs regularly in both Manchester and Norwich. She voluntarily runs workshops and has been a performer of racy feminist poetry for some years. Rebecca Audra Smith is also a regular performer on Manchester's poetry scene. Her poetry is often described as sensual, it's subjects are the depths of our relationship to ourselves and other people. Her work is an introspective look at how people interact with the world. Sara Ellis studies a photography BA and is the designer of Stirred's image and official photographer. Her work utilises elements of street photography while demonstrating a humour and curiosity about our surroundings, both rural and urban, that brings many layers to her images.
