Multimodal Poetry Time

I’m having my Honors Intro to Poetry class finish out the semester with a multimodal poem again. Thanks to the expanded facilities in our newly restored building, I was able to schedule computer classroom time for them. It really helped them jumpstart their poems and also gave me a chance to show them some interesting things to do. I promised a sample poem for them by classtime on Tuesday and I also said I would use CatPaint, with the poem centered on what the world would be like if cats could fly. I wonder what music would fit this idea? Aphex Twin? When my sample poem is done, I’ll post it.
