Observations (36): Pin-Board Poetry


Pin-board poetry…  did I just coin a phrase? I hardly think so.

On the internet I twice found the combination of the words pin-board and poetry. One is a digital pin-board of poetry and in another place the whole medium of Twitter was compared to a poetry pin-board. But I mean to use the word in its literal sense: a real pin-board can be seen as an experimental poem:

The good-as-new cooker hood cheek by jowl with a course on how to live a meaningful life. Our dear cat is missing; have you seen her?

Contributers don’t bother about metre or rhyme,  but they love alliteration.
