'How to be a Corfe Hills Writer

In the December workshop we explored with Jacob his poems 'How to be Urban', 'How to be a Basketball' and 'How to be Gravity'. This neat conceit intrigued us.

How to be a Pen
Always asleep, always dreaming; words; letters; numbers

working hard even though you're sat down.

Full of life, but lacking energy.

A sword to an artistic warrior,

something to comfort a troubled mind.

Your friend; the paper; a welcome gift.

Beth Grew

How to be Snow

The lazy snowdrops evacuate the sombre clouds

And find their haphazard way

Down to the expectant Earth.

They make everything feel festive,

Like it's going to be a white Christmas

Or la navidad blanco, or le noel blanc,

Either way , it's nice,

To go outside

In the untampered bliss

And mould imperfect balls of cold perfection.

Ben Custard

How to be Me

Listen to the music,

come what may,

break the rules, love is for


Find the answer: 42.

White flag, the song for you

And remember just one thing

The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just

to love and be loved in return.
