(#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.
A maximum of 50 lines.
Only one voice should be in the poem (no one else is with the person making the call)
Any style of poem is acceptable
The conversation can be between anyone you like
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.
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
