A Collection of Micropoetry

Easy way to say how you feel

A Fullness in Brevity - Adam Byatt

I like to write micropoetry on twitter, limiting myself to 140 characters (128 if you include the hashtag).

I collect my micro musings in a document with the aim of publishing a book of poetry (I’ve seen a review of a book of 140 twitter fictions so why not a book of micropoetry?)

But I shall share the more recent ones with you here.

Enjoy.

Which one(s) did you like best? Why?

First Date

an open packet of plain chips
(you prefer Salt and Vinegar)
we scrabble for the scraps
and lick the grease
from our fingers

Irony

In an act of irony

Our own insecurities

Radio XXXII, side A, track 12: “We Don’t Have To Be Over 21 (To Fall In Love)” by The Jackson 5

Mixed Tape Masterpiece

The Jackson 5 Oh, The Jackson 5 , I love this track for so many reasons, the main reason being that it kinda stinks.  It’s a crappy recording of another crappy recording of a song that’s not particularly good.  And I love it.  Of all the songs that were featured on the Now and Then Weekend , this is my favorite.  It’s the rawest and maybe even the rarest of the songs that were featured lo those many years ago, and were you a gambling man, if someone had bet you that the lead singer on this tune was going to be one of the biggest pop stars, if not THE biggest pop star, of all time, you would not have taken that bet, The Jackson 5.  The kid was all right, but the harmonies were rooooough, and coupled with the poor sound quality and a fairly mediocre song in general, there’s no…
