This was by far my favorite prompt of the season! I immediately had a character in mind as soon as I read it:
Write a poem in the form of a “to-do list.” The fun of this prompt is to make it the “to-do list” of an unusual person or character. For example, what’s on the Tooth Fairy’s to-do list? Or on the to-do list of Genghis Khan? Of a housefly? Your list can be a mix of extremely boring things and wild things.
And how could I not pick Peter Pan?
I have always thought of him as the villain in the stories about him, his lost boys, and Captain Hook. He never seemed like a mischievous, eternal child to me; he always seemed demonic and selfish.
What do you all think?
