Experimental Poetry 24


This experimental poetry idea is to make entire lines of a poem be shuffled. Therefore, if you have an n-line poem, this creates n! possible arrangements or possible poems, where n! = n*(n-1)*(n-2)*...*1.

I demonstrate this idea using my Freeverse 315. Done this way, there are 3! = 3*2 = 6 possible poems, including the original.

winds are politics
people are leaves
poems are rakes
