Poetry Prompt: Back to the Future

Back to the Future Part II

Today, October 21, is Back to the Future Day, the day Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future Part II in order to save his yet-to-be-born children.

Celebrate poetry style by crafting a found poem sourced from the Back to the Future scripts. The script from the original film can be found here, and parts II/II here.

You might:

  • Choose a character and craft a poem specifically from his/her lines of dialogue.
  • Write a poem from the scene descriptions and directions.
  • Reverse time by using a tool like Text Mechanic to inverse the word order of the script and write a poem from your findings.

Post your results — or a link to your resulting poem on your own blog/ website — in the comment section below.
