Concrete Poetry

Some of the things we wanted to explore were:

   Flux scores
                                                                  Stopping and staring

                 Window shopping

                                                                                                    Snatched pieces of conversation

                                           Concrete poetry...

I was assigned concrete poetry to work with and began to look at how it relates to the postdramatic.

Concrete poetry, otherwise known as shape poetry has many forms. One is where the content of the poem is replicated by the shape of that poem. So if you were to write a poem about a fish, for example, then the shape of the poem would somehow symbolise a fish, whether physically or slightly more abstractly.
