Prompts

by: Jeannette Gomes

write from the perspective of a column on a spreadsheet
write from the perspective of a column on a spreadsheet that rebels right out of your computer to
organize your life in the most insignificant way possible
write from the perspective of a grumpy train conductor in the 1970s who falls in love with a red-
haired woman with two children
write from the perspective of a drowning girl who is being drowned by her lover
write from the bird on the top of the gas chamber
write from the perspective of an internet meme
write from the perspective of a ghost that people enjoy having around
write from the perspective of the beard of a man who is snuggling in the breasts and stomach of a
woman he loves
write from the perspective of a mother who is watching her child falling in the street
write from the perspective of a mother watching her child fall to the ground while there are bullets riddling his skin
write from the perspective of the fire hydrant that is watching it all from a distance across the way write from the perspective of the little girl who loves the little boy
write from the perspective of the little girl who loves the little boy because she was supposed to grow old with him and how she must think all the things that were supposed to be fate and how it
all falls into silent reconsideration and probably will remain stuck there
write all the little pieces of your soul that have been left out in the cold, have been left stuck in all the most traumatic moments of this life and before. tell them to me, all one by one and then tell
me what you would say when you reached to take them back
what do you say when you bring your soul back
what do you say to a broken heart when the breaks are untouchable
write from the perspective of silence
always write from the perspective of the voice of silence
