Tips from the Bar: Between the Lines

Find a poem that you feel strongly about, either positively or negatively. Double space the poem, and write line
that connect the end of one line to the beginning of the next. (For example: “So much depends/upon/a red wheelbarrow,” becomes “So much depends/on the length of rope coiled/upon/the pile of manure in/a red wheelbarrow”), now remove the original poem, and you have a new poem (“On the length of rope/the pile of manure”). Yours will hopefully be better than the pile of manure.
