Big Words And Haikus Dont Mix by BatmanWithBunnyEars Big Words And Haikus Dont Mix by BatmanWithBunnyEars
My main goal was to write a poem and portray it in such a way that each word gets to take up the entire area of the display. (Think of it as a prototype for a space-efficient billboard.) I wanted to make the poem fit a mainstream form so that no matter how few words I used, there wouldn't be any question that it is indeed a poem, and that's how I came up with the idea to write an inefficiently, counterintuitively verbalized haiku.

Please note that the one word is written very small and reiterated throughout the piece, and the word order can be determined by English grammar and the 5-7-5 Haiku syllable format.

Funny trivia: the the title is longer by word count than the piece itself.

Also, I've thought of other ways I might use these visual concepts more effectively, and I might try something like this again in a later work...

This is a really interesting idea, but unfortunately I'm unable to read it at all. I'm colorblind. It'd be great if you'd post the text underneath the image for those of us who are unable to read it.

I uploaded the disassembled uncolored draft in scraps: [link]

It seems that you have to click the image twice for the *FULL* full view, which you'll need to see the tiny lettering of the word "inefficiently". Also note that I incorporated the title and signature into that layer. :)
