Oh, wouldn't the world seem dull and flat with nothing whatever to grumble at?
The dictionary defines the word complain as a way of expressing dissatisfaction or annoyance about a state of affairs or an event. What makes you want to gripe? What’s a gripe you hear too much of? Why isn’t Poets United on time with their stuff lately? I say that in jest because we know you all are understanding, but I thought it would be interesting to call for a poem or prose inspired by complaints. The squeaky wheel gets the oil so make sure you squeak real loud. We are interested to see what you want to gripe about in a creative way.
If you have a prompt idea that you would like to suggest or share with us please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org . We keep a folder set aside with all your suggestions and just might use it one day.
