Writing Exercise #94

Sorry I've fallen behind in posts. I was at the Mission Creek Poetry Festival for the past three days in Iowa and had not anticipated the 72 hours of debauchery coming my way.

Now that I'm back, let's have some fun, shall we?

Write a poem of twelve lines, broken into four stanzas. For each stanza, have the lines split up by:

1 - what did happen
2 - what should have happened
3 - what could have happened (in an alternate universe, of course)

If you need a push, try reading the poem that inspired this exercise, by the ever-talented Jennifer L. Knox.
