Yeah, pretty meta again. Also, silly.
This is my sort of…version of “Want to build a snowman?”, or at least a piece in the same sort of vein as that.
A poem based on observations of mine again.
Another poem about words and writing in a way.
Another playful batch of haiku
When I took a writing class one of my professors informed me of this loose gathering of people who used constrained writing techniques: Oulipo.
We wrote some haiku in class as an example of having some restraint when writing, but I looked up some other constraints used by the movement online and felt intrigued by the snowball, where each line is one word, but each successive word is one letter longer. I did my own twist, where the first line is one word, but then I add one word for each new line. It’s not a proper snowball according to Oulipo, but I rather like the format I ended up with.
This is my first attempt.
Something very experimental, playing with a very different format. And very playful too, yes.
