Where do titles come from?

I'll tell you.

I don't know.


Seriously, I need help here. Strong poem, absolutely no title. I'd really like to include it in my manuscript for Denver, but I refuse to not have a title and no one word or phrase really stands out as title material. Can't I just be Dickinson and use numbers?

You can use numbers but you can't be Dickinson. She's dead.

Alternatively, you could call your poem "The Discontinuity of Atlanta's Thrawling." I think that's the perfect title for your poem.

The Big O said...


I usually use "xq42" when I'm stuck for a title. Has a nice ring to it.

Anna B said...

whereas i feel like the deadness of dickinson makes it possible for you to be her. i mean, b is virgina woolf. so hey, go for it!

Mr. said...


Oh, hey. That wasn't the Big O. That was me.

Of course, I'm in disguise now, but still....just felt a need to clarify.

Am I the only one curious to actually read this poem?
