       DISCLAIMER: In order to get the full effect of this poem, read it in it's entirety before reading this description.

    I wrote a poem called "Mariposa" (Butter fly in Spanish), and though it would be interesting to close my eyes, and run a line down the middle of the paper, and make two more poems out of it. That's what the divisions in Mariposa are. Mariposa (remix) is how I would have structured it had I not been doing this experiment. I hope you enjoyed it.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.

      like the images that you portray here, but my favourite is definately the remix. It flows well and floats like the butterfly

      Starting to get your idea about verse. Need to read more.

    This is a sort of discovery verseform. Before reading the explanation, I thought I could follow a process that finally produced the "remix". But I didn't follow the text clearly - the meanings - except that the sustained trope is clearly the butterfly! Couldn't get any deeper. The butterfly is finely done, though!

    I don't do this kind of play myself, so it is unfamiliar! But I fool with verseforms a lot just by discovering a good free-verse form, or taking a traditional form, and then varying it a bit, hopefully in ways that suit the topic of the particular poem. I guess the flight of the butterfly, or the flight of two to mate, is like the random fission then the hit-and-miss recombination in this poem's make?

    I guess it's a stage of finding techniques, before trying to really write about something? But maybe there's something here that I really don't understand. Can you comment on my comment? Please?

      I think the experiment isn't as neat as the way you'd have written it yourself.

    It seems to wooden (the experiment bit) and fractured. I don't know why, it's not flawed writing, and it certainly isn't bad...in fact it's rather good.

    It just seems too...almost too published.

    Perhaps I'm being unfair - lately I've been on this huge unpublished / underground poetry thing. I mean, I shouldn't be taking issue with the fact that it looks polished enough to be published...but yet, here I am, doing just that.

    God I sound like one of those pretentious indie music fans.

    I'm just going to stop now before I say something really stupid.

      Ick... I hate when people are... Too... ick. That first comment was a load of bs. Anyway, I dunno what else to say about that.

    I love what you did with this. It's really interesting. And it does make sense. You have to think a little loopily (like a butterfly, perchance), but it makes sense. I love the first two lines of II. Heehee it's very flitty, scatterbrained. Cute.

    The form fits the theme. It's beautiful. But... Is Mariposa supposed to illustrate where you drew the line?... I don't really like that there. It's kind of jarring, a little distracting. It's nice to see where it came from, but I think it's just as well left out...

    Anyway, it's lovely. Doing something like this leaves little room for control. Your words are all together, it's basically line breaks and punctuation. For the most part, it's entirely coherent, and very very nice to read. The vew places where a line doesn't make sense just enhances the interest, for me at least.

    Thank you for sharing :)

      Your Mariposa is frustrated and keeps repeating itself.

    Carcas shd be carcass BTW.
    Fingertips is one word.
    your shell is 2 separate words.

    My advice get out of your carcass, leave the form alone work on the piece.
    The Mariposa remix has potential, the cut makes no sense.
    Maybe I am conventional, but I like when things make sense.
    The "cut" pieces make no sense.
    The remix on the other hand makes a neat description of the butterfly, yet nothing overwhelming or breathtaking. It is like u r scared to feel or to explore ur feelings and put them in black on white.

    It is like you r describing what you r seeing but not what is affecting u. The poem lacks the drive and the energy of raw feelings.

    It seems u r describing a nymph leaving its cocoon to become a butterfly, yet we do not feel the struggle or the beauty of the process.

    I have seen it on TV and it is a very moving thing, the way it wriggles itself out, then waits for its wings to unfold in all their beauty.
    Make us feel the grandeur of a new life, mesmerize us.
    Mix your feelings with the butterfly. Mariposa is a very attractive title, make the poem rise up to the beautiful butterfly.
