Craig's List has some really interesting language choices in many of the ads, especially in the free section.  Find an ad that feels lyrical and odd enough to engage you.  Record it like a Beat poem. Add in jazz accents.  If you're feeling really aggresive analyze your work as if it were intentional poetry.
