For Steve:1. I’ll respond with something random about you.
In eight words or less? Steve knows a lot about the short-form poem, especially the haiku.2. I’ll challenge you to try something.
I challenge you to write a long poem! At least one page.3. I’ll pick a color that I associate with you.
Black - coffee, leather jacket, humor, the color paint you go for when you see a red door…4. I’ll tell you something I like about you.
I really like your It Will Be a Train
collection, but especially the title. I don’t know why, but the certainty of it is comforting. Also, I find myself thinking it when waiting on a subway/metro platform. Quite soothing.5. I’ll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
Actually, my first memory of you is in absentia - Alisha read some of your poems at InKY’s open mic, and I cracked up over the teapot serial killer piece. 6. I’ll tell you what animal you remind me of.
If you were to voice a Pixar animated character, it would probably be a cynical, wisecracking armadillo. Mostly ’cause I don’t think we’ve had an armadillo yet. You could work it.7. I’ll ask you something I’ve always wanted to ask you.
There are a great many things I have yet to ask you. I suppose if I pick only one, hm. How about “Jonathan Safran Foer - dude or dud?”8. If I do this for you, you must post this on yours.
