My friend (and 30 Poets/30 Days alumni!) April Halprin Wayland has come up with an intriguing new poem form: the Lingo. The definition of the form, from April, is simple: A Lingo is poem based on the lexicon of a particular field of interest.
In her introductory post, her example is a knock out.
The possibilities seem endless. I might swing for the fences and see if I can force out a baseball example. Hope doesn't turn out foul....
Whatcha think? You gonna lingo?
