Tweet formatted poem: I need another metaphor Something besides a Dissection. No more knives and blood. I’m built more for punchlines than poetry Where it’s all artless, easy imagery too on-the-nose anyway, Isn’t it safer to hang back play the lovable idiot In case It turns out I’m an unlovable idiot?

 

*notes on this one. It is exactly 280 characters, not counting line breaks, the current character limit for a tweet. I spent a LOT of time digging around to see if I could style the text to look exactly like an embedded tweet, and finally gave up and just grabbed a screenshot of an actual tweet whose text and date I doctored in the Inspector in Chrome.

The text reads:

I need another metaphor
Something besides a Dissection.
No more knives and blood.
I’m built more for punchlines than poetry
Where it’s all artless, easy imagery
too on-the-nose
anyway, Isn’t it safer to hang back
play the lovable idiot
In case It turns out I’m an unlovable idiot?
