April 1, ’10: It Don’t Mean a Thing

April 1, 2010 § 11 Comments

ReadWritePoem’s Prompt #1:

  1. 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.)
  2. Write down the first five titles that come up. No cheating allowed!
  3. 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.

 

 It Don’t Mean a Thing

Fishin’ in the dark for your warm back, I rescind our day:
Believe, darlin’, believe and breathe,
for it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.
Let’s dance La Bamba, baby, ‘til our hearts and bellies drop,
For we are the luckiest of all.
