This is my first experience in writing atom poetry, which I found at The Skeptic’s Kaddish. It’s harder than it seems to write 5/7/5 in letters (not syllables) and end up with something meaningful. I used Adam because it sounds like atom.

  3. This is a great poem! But I’d find this form so limiting. 5-7-5 letters are for Scrabble plays!
