Welcome to my poetry blog. Well, it’s not really poetry. And it’s not actually a blog – in the strictest sense of the word.
Wikipedia A blog (a truncation of the expression weblog)is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries (“posts”)
Blog is short for web log – who knew? (probably everyone but me)
(The above is the only piece of information I will ever be offering in my “blog”)
So it’s not truly “informational”
As for discreet, well judge for yourself. .
And it’s not really about poetry – of the traditional sort. If my poems rhyme at all it’s purely coincidental. But we’re not talking free verse (God help us!) either.
In some cases I’m just gonna write down some random thoughts or short essays and then break them into short lines so that I can call them poems.
It’s a poem
If I say it is
If I talked like this
I would drive people crazy
I might even occassionally include a cartoon and call it a “visual poem”
Just to be pretentious and to justify its inclusion in my “poetry” blog
(I like quotation marks – in case you couldn’t tell
I find them to be the best way to make fun of myself. Which I do. A lot.)
