A man walked into a metaphor
It wasn’t funny

On day 29: Bonus poem for the penultimate day of #Napowrimo. I tried to write a longer one that started with this opening sentence. That didn’t work. So this is it.

Today, on day 30: I’ve added a quick sketch made for today’s prompt, so that this can officially be my last poem for #NaPoWriMo. Our last prompt was a minimalist poem, and I fully recommend clicking on this article to discover what they are. Amazing. Weird. Difficult. Fun.

How I wish it was me who wrote this one, called Concrete Poem.

    How cool! Sometimes poetry can tell the future.
    And of course your lines are sublime. Sometimes there’s just not a place for them in the poem we imagine them to be in, but what a nice idea to just make them a poem all of itself.

      It’s funny, with drawing and painting I often find it hard to know when to stop: when will more work on it make is worse instead of better? With a poem, I almost always know. This one clicked when I made it this short.

      I’m looking forward to catching up with some of yours. They deserve quality time instead of quick scans!

        I tried to go the same way and make a poem out of some lines I’ve wanted to use for ages, but then I couldn’t find them anymore. 😦
        On that note, I linked to your blog as an example of this – I hope that’s okay?

        Totally OK. Do you know if your lines were in German or in English? I hope you’ll find them, I would love to read them!
