Assignment #1: A Supermarket in California.

13 Years Ago


You read A Supermarket in California at home and we discussed it in class. In the poem Allen Ginsberg goes on a trip with Walt Whitman. Write a poem in which you go on an adventure with your favorite author. It should be 3-5 stanzas and I want you to include things you would find in the place you chose to go. For example, Ginsberg mentions watermelons, cans, bananas, artichokes, and babies.  The poem will be posted during class Thursday, September 25th. You must critique 5 other people's poems by midnight Sunday, September 28th.

Remember: There can only be 5 critiques for each poem!

Write on!
