A log of the magnificent journey across the vast sea of my imagination.
|When there is no room left in hell
when there is no room left in hell.
This 11 line Skinny poem was composed for Prompt #2 in the January, 2019, round of the "Invalid Item" contest.
African-American poet/songwriter/publisher Truth Thomas invented the Skinny as a vehicle for communicating bits of the human condition through crisp, vivid imagery.
The Skinny is constructed in eleven lines. The first and last lines use the same words, but not necessarily in the same order. All the other lines consist of one word only. Lines 2, 6, and 10 must be the same word, as demonstrated in the following link: https://theskinnypoetryjournal.wordpress.com/2015/09/25/poetry-form-matters-trut... .
