MEMORY TELEPHONE I 🧠☎️
Ask a friend to go on a walk with you.
Go on a walk with your friend. While walking, whisper things that you notice to one another.
When you get home, make a poem with anything that you can remember of what you both whispered.
MEMORY TELEPHONE II 🌞💌
When you wake up, write yourself a letter.
Go about your day.
At the end of the day, try to replicate the letter you wrote at the beginning of the day, without looking at it.
After reviewing the 2 letters, write about a poem inspired by the differences and/or commonalities between the 2.
Option 2: You can combine the 2 letters to create a synthesized letter poem to yourself.
