[addition poetry]

 

for superfluous credit the poet will begin with a sentence either written or taken from an outside source. the poet will then make a revision of this poem by adding spaces, letters, and punctuation. the poet will then make a new revision of this revision the same way. this should result in at least three nested poems: the final poem containing the letters of all previous ones.

of particular emphasis is making new words out of the old words by adding letters and spaces.

of party tickle your lard emphasizing as i stand manicured king of new words forged out of the old words by adding letters and spaces.

soft party ticklish eel. your collared neck emphasizing adams apple, i stand manicured king of the newts. brandishing words as plowshares forged out of the old swords. all by adding letters and spaces.
