Band name I won't be using, so you can have it: "Venti Poobah"
A while back I mentioned a book called Eunoia
On Tuesday, I got the book from the library (although, goodness gracious, looks like you can read the whole book online!) and coincidentally received in the mail the exciting Arnade Family alliterative haiku newsletter. Both are examples of how a tight stylistic collar can produce some really cool work.
I was expecting the Bok book to be a snooze, but it is compellingly readable, lush prose poetry.
And here is my first attempt at an alliterative haiku. Try it at home!!
No, not now nor nigh-on.
