A Way With Words
In your question
Is not a search
For an answer
But an argument.
You speak bitterly
Not for betterment
Will these be
This was today’s piece of micropoetry.
I started it yesterday, writing it into twitter and saving it as a draft. All of my micropoetry fits into the 140 character space of twitter. Most of the time it includes the hashtag #micropoetry.
For this poem I used all the available space.
This morning I did a little rearranging before posting it.
It popped up on my Facebook page also and two friends from my writing group made some suggestions for rearranging.
Let’s play a game: How would YOU rearrange the poem? I fiddled with two variations, but how would you play with the form?
- add punctuation
- change the order of lines
- rearrange word order
You cannot add or remove words.
