A Different Kind of Juxtaposition

Post date: Jun 07, 2016 12:48:59 AM

A new addition on the Essays page is “One-Part Haiku,” a short exploration of haiku having just a single part instead of the more common two-part juxtapositional structure. A one-part haiku is equivalent to Japanese haiku that have their cutting words at the end of the poem. This essay recently appeared in Geppo. Please take a gander—and don’t miss the new postscript at the end, which expands on the essay with additional examples.
