First, read Chelsey Minnis's poem "Bad Bad": Prompt 5: Chelsey Minnis, “Bad Bad” imitation Your assignment for Prompt 5 is to write a love poem in the style of Minnis. Requirements:  It should be a long poem – at least 10 pages;bbbbbbbbbb  But the per page word limit is 20-50 max;  You must use (nearly) every character space on the page – that is, you should use the page as a screen and each character space -----------like this, I mean---------needs to include some information, so that |||||||||| even an empty space starts to accumulate significance;  To supply the language, the terms of your love / hate / bitterness / desire, use a minimum of 3 non-literary lexicons (a specific set of terms related to a particular field) – that is, use your densest material, your weightiest textbooks from physics, or packaging science, or organic chemistry, or Javascript, etc. At least one of these sources needs to be an instruction manual that came with a product (like the terms and conditions that came with your earbuds, or the like). In other words, you’re looking for storehouses of language that you don’t think of as “poetic,” that you wouldn’t normally reach for to express your feelings.  As you compose the piece, try to alternate or braid the lexicons together – balance the terminology, in other words, so the piece doesn’t lean too much in one direction. Use your poetic license. So, first gather your source material – stack up the heavy textbooks on your desk within your reach, then write your long poem, figuring out how to fill the page. Example: You are prime meridian ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ my dormant bulb. It is ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ dry rot to be with you. You are a rust encapsulator. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ You are power sink. -- And so on. Your goal is to figure out a way of developing a complex portrait using these unusual terms.
