Queue Ball

A prompt featuring Simone Muench and Jackie K. White's "Queue"

In the mode of Simone Muench and Jackie K. White’s “Queue,” draft your own feminist collaborative sonnet. Have one person write the first and third stanzas, and the other person compose the second and fourth stanzas, going back and forth. Instead of end rhyme, employ internal rhyme, assonance, and alliteration, letting sound lead the way, as in this ingenious sequence: “We’ve all worn boots and kicked them off / to tunes in every genre and gin joint.” Include a call to action at the volta, as Muench and White do: “Let’s unscrew the stage lights, / sing adieu to blank cartridges, beer coasters.” Begin or end the poem in word-play: Queue / cue –> in our own time. Revel and rollick.
