American sentences

Learn something new every day: this morning as I was checking out Deb's post for Read Write Poem, I read about American Sentences, a poetic form I'd never previously encountered. The gist of American Sentences: they're haiku-length poems (17 syllables) but without the line break constraints of a traditional haiku. Sounds like fun.

Fingers ripple across keyboard; I avoid real life dirty dishes.

Thanks for the nod. I think the only way I can do NaPoWriMo this year is by way of these.

I like yours! Avoidance art :-) about the art of avoidance.

(Or, as your word verification says: mwwwrm!)
