1. As you sit on a park bench (describe the scenery), someone comes over and sits beside you.
2. You say “hello” and begin to chat. Within a few moments you realize that the person with whom you’re chatting is you!
3. Is this you as a child, young adult, you right now, or the future you? Describe yourself.
4. Include what you talk about in your poem. What important things are said? What’s going on around you as you talk? What does this “encounter” offer you?
5. How does the encounter end?
