(#5371418) Poetry Writing Competition no 24: Write a dialogue-only poem of one half of a phone call
Posted by HeatherN on 2 May 2022 at 3:08PM
This task is to write a poem consisting ONLY of one half of a phone conversation. This means no explanations, asides. We could be guessing what the other person might be saying.

I couldn't find any famous poems fitting all the criteria, so I quickly wrote one of my own below. I am sure you can do much better.

Rules

3 A maximum of 50 lines.

3 Only one voice should be in the poem (no one else is with the person making the call)

3 Any style of poem is acceptable

3 The conversation can be between anyone you like

3 There doesn't have to be any point to the phone call (most phone calls are 90% small-talk) or it could be really important or world-changing - it's entirely up to you.

________________________________________________

Goodbye

Shut up!
Let me talk
I donít want to know
Your excuses are lame
Iím going to go.

Iím hanging up now
Stop telling lies
No, I donít believe you
Your hows and your whys

No, I havenít got time
To hear you out
Your pathetic excuses
Carry no clout

I was stood in the rain
For at least an hour
Your car didnít break down
And your phone battery had power

Goodbye, you tosspot
You complete waste of space
I never again
Want to see your face

No
No
No
No
Bye
