It's
ou t of my r ea ch
slowly fli tter ing
Just to dangle a meter away
Emphatically, I stress
"How tan ta li zing"


I was poking around with meter and syllabic force. Way out of my league for now. Also, it's hard to illustrate how I would want this to be laid out given the blog's limited formatting capabilities.

  1. This reminds me of e.e. cumings' style of poetry, are you familiar with him?

    he plays with form and the sounds of words in a way that subdivides them into phonetic distortions

  2. e. e. cummings is my favorite poet. What he writes is what I feel poetry is supposed to be. Some day, I hope to be able to write on par with him. The other poet I really like is Blake, mainly for his thunder.
