Experimental Poetry Form: scatter

Today’s experimental poetry form is called scatter.  In the form, there are twenty words scattered on the page.  The words are read from left to right and from top to bottom.  The poet can decide the exact positions of the words.

Here is an example poem written in the form:

It           is

                                       amazing               how            few   people

 

 

are                                             really

 

 

                     in                                        to               the           things

 

        that                          are                                  perceived

 

to                           be                    the                                      most

 

popular.
