Happy National Poetry Month!
Are you trying to write poems this month? Looking for a few choice prompts?
I've been posting multiple prompts per day on my Twitter, but these are the 119 (about 17 per day avg.) I've posted as of 4/7/14 at 2:00 PM. Have at! (But don't steal my shit for your buster-ass workshops, yo. Credit where credit is due.)
(Note: If you print these out it's going to be 5 pages long.)

Alright, so I took a stab at the Lovecraft, and now I want to know what the mastermind behind all this thinks, which is to say, kudos! And thanks! And if I find a place to publish such a thing, how much credit do you want at that point!?
