Poemic Inquiry -- Taking time to work with rhyme

First, apologies for my hiatus from this blog.  A trip away from my computer followed by a return to both an excessive amount of work and a downed computer has limited my internet participation.  There's only so much one can do with an iPhone.

Fortunately, saniismail's invitation to collaborate with "Exit" seems to have filled the gap.  And happily, our contributors here prove time and again that they can produce amazing poemic work with no prompt whatsoever. 

Since I am back (sorta), I thought I would pose another question for Poemic Inquiry.  Since our last inquiry on sound effects was more oriented toward the comics end of the hybrid form, I thought this time we could investigate a something on the poetry end.  Namely, how might poemics deal with rhyme?  Even though contemporary poetry tends to embrace free-verse and avoid rhyme, rhyming words have a rich tradition in poetry and play a central role in popular "spoken word" forms of poetry performance.  Is there such a thing as visual rhyming?  Is rhyme only a linguistic concept? 

As with past PI's, feel free to contribute your work here or link in the comments section to another site that showcases work addressing this topic. 

(Side note:  I haven't pulled together a linked compendium of the last Poemic Inquiry on sound effects yet.  Is that sort of post useful?  Or do you think the blog archive does that well enough without those compendium posts?)

any more contributions to xerolage?

hello, I would like to ask you, if anyone would still like to participate in the poemic Xerolage issue? I've gathered 21 pieces so far, and we need 24. would someone be interested in sending 3 poemics with speech balloons (8,5 inches width, 11 inches height, high resolution, and a bio as well as a photo)? please! I've made 6 already, so it would be better, if someone else makes the missing pieces.

the original information about xerolage was placed here.

edit: all 24 pieces gathered, we're ready to go! saved by Bungy (2 more pieces) and by me :) (one more piece). I'll start sending the works to mIEKAL, and I'll let you know how things go as soon as I know. thank you all for contributing works (just in case there are technical or other kinds of problems, let's stay in touch).

Fast Contribution


Fast contribution.  Missing getting to do more art.  Work is in high pressure mode.  Unfolding and wrapping me in bands of crippling obligation.  Must. Crawl. To. Exit.
