This Week's Prompt:
Write a poem inspired by your favorite poet.

Next Week’s Prompt:
Write a list poem of choices, each line/choice ending with the line “and I will die on this hill.” It could be funny like “A bar of soap is better than any kind of body wash, and I will die on this hill.” Or heavier things. Another option is to write a longer poem detailing a choice which ends with the line.

The Rattlecast livestreams on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, then becomes an audio podcast. Find it on iTunes, Spotify, or anywhere else you get your podcasts.
