Countless thanks to Truth Thomas for featuring two of my poems, “rivers to run” & “Wall” in The Skinny Poetry Journal (January 27, 2017). TSPJ is a Washington, D.C. based unique literary journal dedicated to the Skinny poetry form :
Skinny is a short poem form consisting of eleven lines. “The first and eleventh lines can be any length. The eleventh and last line must be repeated using the same words from the first and opening line (however they can be rearranged). The second, sixth, and tenth lines must be identical. All the lines in this form, except for the first and last lines, must be comprised of ONLY one word. The point of the Skinny, or Skinnys, is to convey a vivid image with as few words as possible. Skinny poems can be about any subject. They can also be linked, like Haiku, Senryu or Tanka.”
