Word Paletting 8


  1. Start out with a weirdo pun,

    to initiate the production of 


    your palette, in order to 


    establish a double entendre:                                                                      socialist butterflies.

2.  Then, amass a palette of phrases,


each element  of  which


 contains the simultaneously


shared term that is to be


implemented into the poem.


3.   For socialist butterflies, I used an


insect motif; my palette


looked like this:


a. social butterflies


/socialist butterflies


b. be dazzled /bee dazzled


c. may fly /mayfly


d. or flee /or flea


e. might override /mite override


f. flee /flea


4. Simultaneously, as you write


that which could seem


magnanimously mundane,


 you implement sneaky enigma


that your reader will, likely, slowly


reckon the full implications


of, leading him or her


to think you are magic.


5.  Of course, you need to perform


rock-tumbling and


add visual typewriter


gymnastic tricks


and sleights of hand.

social -ist butter -flies,


                  on solo -flights,                                                 have let themselves be dazz                           -led by an ideal of                                             environs &, in flight, mayfly                         or flea to flames, where                                   -in, they make relations,                               spacial, ‘tho honesty mite                             override & let them find                                 a lee to flea, wherein                                         to flit & find, @ least,                                       another’s stake to claim                                 & call their own


6. The use of appositives can


 enhance your poem, too.
