Einband: Soft cover

Zustand: New


Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This collection of 1600 pseudohaikus goes down like potato chips. What's a pseudohaiku? It's a poem of pure indulgence, a three-liner without the constraint, the pretension or the 5/7/5 syllable form. The subject matter? Relationships, cats, insecurities - themes that recur and build into a pulsing non-linear narrative. Easily digestible yet remarkably acute, The World is a Heartbreaker is a catalogue of shotgunned emotions and pointed bite-sized observations. Sometimes sexy, sometimes scandalous, but always three lines long. There are no pleasures like the guilty ones. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_1552451534

The World Is a Heartbreaker inaugurates a new subgenre: imposter poetry. This collection is a set of 1600 pseudohaikus, bite-sized chunks of poetic goodness shotgunned at the distracted masses.

What?s a pseudohaiku? It?s the poetry of pure indulgence, a three-liner without the constraint, the pretension or the 5–7–5 syllable form. The subject matter? Relationships, cats, insecurities – themes recur and build into a kind of non-linear narrative.

These micropoems are easily digestible yet remarkably acute, a catalogue of scattered thoughts and pointed observations that go down like potato chips – betcha can?t read just one.

Sometimes sexy, sometimes scandalous, sometimes sentimental, but always three lines long, these pseudohaikus are the future of poetry in a world awash with sound bites, news clips, catchphrases. There are no pleasures like the guilty ones.
