Today, we will write a poem that goes against our natures and create an evil twin.
Answer the following questions as honestly as possible:
1. Are you a morning person/night person?
2. Do you prefer the mountains or the ocean?
3. Coffee or tea?
4. Planned-out or spontaneous?
5. Nostalgia or trendiness?
6. Prefer cold or hot?
7. Fruit or Vegetables?
8. Fast car or practical car?
9. Star Wars or Star Trek?
You get the idea. You can add of as many other opposite types of questions as you like. But now that you’ve answered honestly, try to write a poem about yourself (or a speaker who is like you) that uses the OPPOSITE of all the things you would have honestly chosen. For instance, I would have to try and write about how much I am defined by early mornings in the mountains with a cup of coffee (which would not be bad, but not my first choices…)
