Happy Birthday, Asshole!

ACT 1. Gossip

(partner/ring-around game—8 lines)

Use the paper emojis provided in the packet.

The poets sit in a circle around a table. The poets form teams of two. The two team members pass one note of gossip back and forth, writing a line each time. Your line is influenced both by your partner’s line.


ACT 2. Public Note

(individual—5 lines)

Write a pome that really, while keeping up appearances, tells them how you feel.


ACT 3. Private note

(individual—no limit, not to be read out loud but given to the birthday boy to read in private)

This is from your heart to the birthday girl’s or boy’s eyes only.
