Dear Prosers, I dare you write about the erotic, an almost taboo topic for poets in Prose. You can come up with either a piece of prose or a poem indeed. “Writing The Erotic” Brainstorm a list of mundane activities not usually though of as erotic--washing the dishes or the car, mowing the lawn, going to the dentist. Now, make a list of nouns associated with that activity. Then make a list of verbs and adjectives that you associate with sex. Stir everything together, and make the mundane activity sound positively orgasmic. (Activity taken from “The Poet’s Companion” by Kim Addonizio & Dorianne Laux)
