This is a collection of the poetry I’ve posted to this blog. I don’t often write poems, but when I do I like to get a bit experimental, so there’s a small section at the end for the infamous Backwards-Forwards poems.
The Backwards-Forwards Poems
The Backwards-Forwards poems are poems which tell two different stories depending on whether the lines are read backwards or forwards. They are designed to be posted to Twitter, so that the first story is told as they appear in your feed, and the second story is told when you read them back scrolling down someone’s wall. The rules are that the lines must stay in the same order and the words on those lines too, but that the punctuation can move around.
