Today’s poetry topic idea is aluminum cans. There are a number of ways a poet can use aluminum cans in poetry. Some ideas include writing about:
- The different beverages that can be in aluminum cans.
- The idea that the fluid in aluminum cans, once opened, is only good for a short amount of time.
- Fragility mixed with strength. Aluminum cans are fragile, in the sense that they can be easily crushed. They are strong though because they can bear a relatively large amount of weight.
Here is an example poem using the idea of fragility mixed with strength from aluminum cans:
collapsing on the sofa
a long week at work
