Shuffle Prompt Tuesday: August 19, 2014

bombs exploding on what used to be a school
get to the choppa
oh shit, that’s a drone
anxiety and panic
drop the surroundings to silence in your head
sound shutters back with the vibration of the ground
as your feet try to balance
another bomb dropped
another moment passed
don’t stay still for too long
might not be your everyday happening
but it happens far too often
in too many places
bass in your face

- KS
prompt: bass in your face
song: “The Matrix” by Bassnectar

Diction and Metaphor: WordPress and Tumblr

Did you see this week’s Shuffle Prompt?

It went out this morning around 11am!

Do you know about Shuffle Prompt Tuesday?
It’s where I pick a random prompt inspired by or from a song that is also chosen at random using Shuffle setting with varying genre stations of music, and then write a poem or prose piece to that prompt that interacts with the song. Please listen to the song as you read the piece, and then reread it when you see where the song was taking me.
Let me know what you think.
Leave a song request in the ask and I’ll let you know when to expect the results! ;)


Would love to hear from you!


Questions, art, poetry, short stories, favorite books, looking for a quote to describe something (I’ll throw you a few of my favorites depending on the subject), Or anything literary or art related!

Send me art, poems, and/or short stories, please!!!
