Experimental poem: The seasons of us

This week I’d like to share an experimental poem with you. This poem is partially a found poem and takes its inspiration and form from a dictionary entry.

Because of the form I’m forced to present this poem through the use of an image file. For those of you who use screen readers, I will paste the text into the alt caption. I hope it still makes sense that way!


The seasons of us

See Bloom, Sunburn, Shedding, and Regeneration. 2 a period of the year when a particular activity is done: the wedding season. See also The Honeymoon Season; Us. phrases in season 1 (of a fruit or vegetable) plentiful and ready to eat. See Feast, Abundance. 2 (of a female mammal) ready to mate. See Fecund .

    • Oh thank you! Great praise indeed! It’s an older poem actually. I posted it on Instagram when I first wrote it, but it wasn’t very popular. Nevertheless, I kept believing in this poem. It’s just a question of presenting it to the right people!
