FREE WRITING

14
1. Prose
This one is just were you write a bunch of big words together with irregular capitalizations, and it just sounds really pretty. 
Example: 
i.
innocence flees Along the eyelashes of The vulnerable

The beauty about the above is that it means nonsense to me, but someone might find a deep meaning in it.

2. Slam Poetry
Smash things while screaming random words.
Example:
*aggressively throws chair* "MICROWAVE!"

there you have it, folks. Slam poetry.

3. Rhyming
Take it away, Dr.Suess!

Example: roses are red, violets are blue, um...
               a cow goes... moo?
