Experimental Poetry 21
This experimental poetry idea is using subscripts and superscripts to change the look of your poem. This could be used with things that go up, down, are good, bad, as well as things that get smaller over time. One can also randomly insert subscripts and superscripts. I will demonstrate this general idea using my Freeverse 515:
the frog jumped into the sky and splashed the pond awake
The words "jumped" and "sky" connotate images of high up, or moving upwards. Of course, we know the frog is jumping into the reflection of the sky in the pond, and not into the sky itself (although it could be argued that the frog is momentarily in the sky, or in the air anyway).
Using subscripts and superscripts, consider the following changes to the look of this poem:
thefrogjumpedintothesky andsplashedthepond awake
A couple of other variations could be:
thefrogjumpedintothe sky and splashedthe pondawake
the frogjumpedintothesky and splashedthe pondawake
One could also put subscripts and superscripts on the same word at the same time.
