21: Points of View
When you change the point of view, you change the story. Write an address or self-portrait from the perspective of an inanimate object. In the case of an address, what lesson(s) can you convey in this new form? What revelatory comparisons can you draw from your unexpected self-portrait?
Write a poem about a conflict that was hard to work through. Beyond representing the subject matter, find ways to enact that tug-of-war with the poem's grammar or mechanics.
