Write a 4-line Personal Ad: Include a Muse

This exercise is derived from Suzanne Redding's Personal Ad
in Claiming the Spirit Within: A Source Book of Women's Poetry, edited by Marilyn Sewell, New York: Beacon Press, p.144.

Personal Ad

skeleton woman seeking flesh
heart needed for drumming
have bones, will sing

-Suzanne Redding

Here's mine:

Thought Woman seeks pen,
paper needed for Mnemosyne
has dictionary, will browse
in garden, will plant.

-Esther Altshul Helfgott
