There’s a 100% chance that you’re currently looking at the comforting, addictive, inescapable glow of a screen. Screens are everywhere in our life, not in the least when we read and write (and blog).
Today, write a poem about/against/in homage to the screens in your life. If gadgets of all types leave you uninspired, write about some other kind of screen — for example, the one stretched across your window, or the piece of cloth on which movies are projected at the theater.
