Random Ideas for Future Poems

1. A date as a title, referring to a historic occasion.

2. A poem taking off from an article in the paper, possibly using a quote as epigraph. Could be serious or silly.

3. Dramatic monologue of a favorite character from a book or a tv show. Like fanfic, but in poetry.

4. Dramatic monologue of either/both of my grandfathers (or other ancestor) whom I have never met.

5. Write a poem in Tagalog and translate it into English, or vice versa.
