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.
