I acquired The Magnetic Poetry Book of Poetry from www.paperbackswap.com a few months ago (nevermind that it’s not a paperback) because I knew it included a poem by my Lix and Kix co-host Dianne Borsenik.  When I received it, I was pleasantly surprised to discover it includes a bag of word tile magnets.  At first I was reluctant to attempt writing a poem with these tiles, figuring I’d be limited in my word choice and unable to produce my best work.  But when Smith and Lady began posting some word tile poems on their www.walkingthinice.com blog this month I remembered my own tiles and began to consider giving it a go — if only for amusement’s sake.  Here are my first fruits.  Tentative title: “Magnetic Repulsion.”
