Been trying to actually get into poetry, I only know about Bukowski lmao. Checked out Poetry 180 and The Poetry Foundation online but also wanted to know what the community's favorite poets or poems (underrated or not) are. Cheers. tag me @deathbyaudio

Write about it. Anything. All the why's and the memories trailing it like a kite.

What influences you?
What piece of art, whether it be a film, book, or an album, stirs something in you and pushes you to write, if any?

Cadavre Exquis 1:
I'm going to mess around with the rules a bit. Just write 60 words about any topic (doesn't have to be 60 exact btw, can be under, even just one or two lines) then DM someone the last line. Next person writes 60 words based on that last line, DMs someone theirs', and so on and so forth. Let's just do four people in a group for now. When a group finishes, communicate and send your stuff to the last person. The last one GETS TO TITLE, posts the whole piece. and tags all the collaborators. Last person also gets the say on where paragraphs start and end lmao. I do suggest just DMing some random person - send them the link to this challenge for explanation (hello). A good way to hang out with the prose community in these troubling times. Also this is the first one so it'll probably get a bit messy haha; DM me for any questions or if someone thinks there's a cleaner way to execute it (I'd appreciate it) - we'll add more rules and criteria on the next one if this gets enough traction. Don't think too hard and go wild. Much love.
Music Inspired Prompt #2
Basically like the first one except you choose your own song. Post the title of the song on your comment. Tag me @deathbyaudio

Music Inspired Writing Prompt
Write a prose, poem, or anything that comes to mind as you listen to this song: Searching for Things by Tarentel. You can describe landscapes, or have two characters just talk (anything really) while using the track as some sort of theme for the piece - go wild. You can edit it how many times you like, and make sure to tag me whenever you make new changes. If you don't dig the track, it's all good, I'll have another prompt up where you'll be choosing your own song for your own entry, really interested in listening to other stuff. Main reason why I made this challenge is cause I want to see how differently people'll react to the same track, and to read your subsequent entries, of course. Can't wait for the entries. Much love. Tag me @deathbyaudio P.S. I'll probably make this into a monthly thing depending on how many people are into it.

Write about the rough shit you're going through right now or have been through. Poems, stories or whatever.
I broke my leg doing jiu-jitsu. Been a month already. I feel like shit. I know hindsight is 20/20. In the future I'll be grateful for this experience. But it sucks when you're in the thick of it. If anyone out there's going through a rocky road, puke it all out here if you want. Misery loves company. Don't worry about winning, we're all winners here already. Much love ladies and gents. Tag me @deathbyaudio so I get notifications.

Only Dialogue Exercise
Write a story that evokes a setting, space, and atmosphere only through the use of realistic dialogue between two distinct characters. No descriptions of where they are or who they are - no extra fluff of what's happening. Give us just enough context to understand what's going on from how they speak and what they say. Much love ladies and gents, get freaky with it c: Tag me @deathbyaudio
