For your first assignment, you will choose your favorite line(s) from a song you like. Then you will use it/them as an epigraph to start an original poem of your own. In addition to your epigraph, your poem will also contain at least three of the sonic devices covered in Sound Logic: our first poetry packet, such as anaphora, onomatopoeia, slant rhyme, assonance and consonance, among others. Whatever lyric(s) you decide to use, work to vary your poem's musical elements. Use your ear as well as your mind and heart; use your epigraph to begin a poem that uses music as the primary means of giving it a definitive, shape, focus, and trajectory, so that you move your audience; that you make your readers feel the significance of the words and feelings as much as your chosen performer(s) did for you as you listened to them today. Mike like David Bowie and channel your inner Starman: let your epigraph be the launch pad that makes your rocket of ideas and feelings move your reader to new worlds of discovery, understanding, empathy, cogency, and resonance.
