I’m very pleased today to share my poem, Condensing the Astral, appearing now on Better Than Starbucks, on the ModPo & Experimental Poetry page. Thanks to Anthony Watkins for providing the opportunity. You can read the poem, and other poems, here: http://www.betterthanstarbucks.org/modpo-and-experimental-poetry

Condensing the Astral is an experimental poem, created for a prompt to create a new form. The lines were revised from an earlier erasure poem draft  originally found in generated material from the Bullshit generator.  The form I devised is called a Repetrain: 20 line poem consisting of 4 quatrains, with 16 new lines and 4 repeating lines.  Each repeating line appears in a subsequent stanza in the same place as in the originating stanza, i.e. line one repeats as the first line of stanza 2, line 2 as the 2nd line of stanza 3 etc:
