“Poetery”. I coined this phrase by accident. It was a typo in my first blog. But since I was writing about art including poetry and pottery, I thought poetery might be a new term describing either:

  • Pottery that is visual poetry, OR
  • Poetry that is verbal pottery

I can imagine the first more than the second. I think I’ve seen (and maybe occasionally created) poetery pottery.

But what would poetry that is verbal pottery sound like? Earthy? Fragile? Full of form? Or maybe it would be functional in some way — like a serving bowl is communal? How might one write a poem that feels like a well crafted ricebowl in the hands?
