The Sonnetweet

My new summer project: adapt the tweet into the sonnet into the tweet.

Fourteen lines, 140 characters, that’s 10 characters a line. I’m doing this!

  1. Hm…so, maybe something like this:

    inaugural;
    shtswhack-
    gerbilanal
    RodStewak;
    whtcnbsaid
    whtcnbdone
    Modern bed
    snntO.N.E.
    Elecxotica
    ambergris:
    techrytica
    ‘nneonpiss
    Shootdice:
    breadnrice

    (w/o breaks it’s 140 characters)

    • YES. This is the basic idea. What will prove to be a challenge will be the breaks, or finding a way to not take the vowels out of words.

      • first one
        red dress
        in duress
        so undone
        a strange
        precision
        collision
        to change
        ambergris
        to saints
        more paint
        less this
        lost arms
        no charms

        I saw two you did on tumblr and i prefer how you break your lines to this but I can’t think sonnet without falling into the boring rhyme scheme above.
