To write link poetry is to connect.
Connect each line, last word to first.
First comes from last and that’s it.
It is not so hard, after all.
All that is needed is to imagine.
Imagine your uneven castle wall.
Wall away almost every rule.
Rule your new kingdom, here.
A POETIC MOVEMENT LINKING EACH OTHER
Link Poetry – a brief history
Link Poetry is a new poetry form created by Ritesh Nigam.
Link poetry uses the most interesting rule from loop poetry and turns it into the central focus, the MVP, the star of the show. The idea of the last word becoming the first word is fun. It’s interesting, just restrictive enough to lead to some creative wordplay, and delightfully rhythmic. But it’s the only rule we need, so let’s make it the main attraction.
