Spunk

This poem was a free-write in which the practice is to let the stream of consciousness flow and write whatever pops into your head. If you find yourself making sense it is best to suddenly change the subject. Especially in an excersize such as this. Needless to say, this it the most fun of all the writing excersizes I do. It keeps one's imagination fresh and on the ball. It's also the best way to get over "writer's block." Ocassionally breaking from working on one thing and doing this allows you to turn back on your imaginative drive!

Spunk

Have you ever licked a marshmallow?
What noise does that make? Shkla-c-ck?
Or dropped a coin, a noise like chi-chang
Ring-ah’-Ring-ah’.
Perhaps an Elephant fart goes tuba-booba,
But a duck is rather quaint, with its
Little doot-deet.
