Questions as Crescendo
For inspiration: Carl Phillips’s “As from a Quiver of Arrows”
Fill a page with as many questions as you can—large and small—silly and serious—practical and mystical.
Choose the question you feel is richest, strangest, most emotionally complex.
Write a poem beginning with that question. Let the question breed other questions and observations. Increase the number of questions as the poem moves along until the final stanza or last five lines of the poem are nothing but questions.
