Sources (in order of appearance): Kass, John. “It’s not your mother’s grilled cheese anymore”. Chicago Tribune. 4 April 2014: 2.
Schmich, Mary. “Ban won’t snarl dog owners: Options to remain after plastic bags become a scarcity”. Chicago Tribune. 4 April 2014: 3.

In a Fibonacci sequence, each term is the sum of the two terms immediately preceding it; typically with 1 as the first term: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5,8, 13, 21, 34, 55 and so on.
Select an article from your newspaper and create a poem using the words that correspond with the numbers in the sequence. Your poem will take the form of first word, first word, second word, third word, fifth word, eighth word, thirteenth word, etc. You can continue until you’ve run out of words in your article or until you’re happy with the poem’s conclusion.

How lucky can you get– to have “minimalist” pop up as one of your words!
