BJ’s Shadorma & Beyond – Poetweet

Poetweet is simple to explain – but less simple to construct. “Poetweet” is a free verse poem constructed with *exactly* 140 characters. That number *includes* punctuation and line breaks. (Hence the “tweet” portion of the name. “Tweets” in “Twitter” can be no longer than 140 characters.)

Dear Laura,

I hope you are fine.
I miss you.
I love you.
Always look after yourself.

I’m yours, Florante

Dear Florante,

Thanks for your letter.
I miss you, too.
But my husband is here.
And so I must make haste.

I’m sorry but I’m not really yours,
Laura
