Paul of Paul’s Poetry Playground introduced the Invented Poetry Form – The Skinny

Here’s the skinny on The Skinny –

The skinny is an eleven-line poem in which all the words of the first line are repeated in the eleventh and final line. The words may be used either in the original order or rearranged.  All the other lines of the skinny consist of just one word, with the second, sixth, and tenth lines being the same word. The main goal of the skinny is to try to convey a precise idea or vivid image with the least amount of words possible. To learn more, read here – Invented Poetry Forms — The Skinny
