In 2006 I came up with an idea for an experimental poetic form called the Cleave Poem.
One of my aims was to examine how something can be more than the sum of it’s [sic] parts and can be 3 in 1: synergy, fusion, co-operation, dialectics, marriage, interdependence, teamwork and The Trinity.
How to read a Cleave poem?
1. Read the left hand poem as a first discrete poem.
2. Read the right hand poem as a second discrete poem.
3. Read the whole as a third integrated poem.
I found the site because there is a Jack Kerouac poem there.
I decided to try my hand at Cleave Poetry and submitted a poem. It was published January 10, 2009. It's called Immortality.
Check out Cleave Poetry and maybe try your hand at writing a cleave poem. It's tougher than it looks!
