Fancy a Game of Splatt?

We used to have a big freezer in my office. It took up way too much room, so we moved it to the basement. I don’t miss the ginormous thing, but I do miss the little poetry magnets I kept on its door. When I had my daughter, a friend bought me a set of “Motherhood” poetry magnets and I turned to them over and over—not for lengthy periods of time, but for some starter fluid (as Jill Badonsky calls it) now and again when I was feeling a little blocked.
