at the Patterson-Appleton Art Center in Denton.
Kitchen Sync is an open mic for poets, sponsored by GDAC and taking place on the third Thursday of each month at the Patterson-Appleton Art Center in Denton.
Each month we offer a prompt to prime our poetic pumps. This February, in a month devoted to honoring romantic entanglements, we offer PROPINQUITY.
Propinquity can mean physical proximity, a kinship between people, or a similarity in nature between things. The effect of propinquity is profound – office romances are a perfect example of how propinquity affects someone’s psyche and body. Never underestimate the intimacy of propinquity, which sneaks in so unobtrusively we barely, rarely sense it happening. This month we ask you to describe an incidence of propinquity. By all means slip the word ‘propinquity’ into your poem, if you can. It’s a big word, an awkward word, a word most of us don’t know, but which affects us all. Witness the homage we pay to propinquity this month as we send our valentines hither and thither in a strange flurry of affection to lovers, friends and strangers.
