Word Paletting 8


  1. Start out with a weirdo pun,

    to initiate the production of


    your palette,


    in order to establish a


           double entendre:


          e.g.: 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.
