I seen a peanut stand, heard a rubber band
I seen a needle that winked its eye
But I be done seen 'bout ev'rything
When I see a elephant fly...
Have you ever seen a rhyme?
Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
I have been thinking about representing rhyme as image. What would a couplet look like for instance? Perhaps it would be two images that share shapes as words share sounds. Could a comic be poem? Clearly an idea better expressed and tested on the page - so I wrote/scribbled this pantoum about a red-faced man, a bird and a clock.
