In this special international issue of Devour, the publisher, Richard (Tai) Grove of Hidden Brook Press / HBP, has published a poetry hybrid he calls “panku.”
A special Panku issue for The Poetry Pandemic Project.
For this project the name “Panku” comes from a cross between the words “Pandemic” and “Haiku” = Panku. It is meant to be a humourous play on words. In these strange pandemic days, I thought it was time that we lightened up a bit so I started “The Poetry Pandemic Project”. We put a call our for uplifting, fun, light, amusing, pandemic poems in the form of a Panku. – See the call for submissions on the last page of this magazine.
The poems are no longer than 4 lines and contain no more than 15 words.
At the time of posting, the “call” is still open as Tai works on another volume (flip through the pages to page 86 for details; email: email@example.com ).
You’ll find my contribution on pages 58-59.
Enjoy and contribute to the next issue.
