Blips

The following poems are all one-liners, compressions, or perhaps blips, arranged alphabetically. Although nearly all of them were first published in haiku journals (a list of publication credits appears at the end), they live beyond or on the boundaries of haiku. See also “pweormds” and “Selected One-Liners.”
