Author:Gregory K. Pincus
Description: "Fibs./ Terse./ Defined./ As your tools,/ Twenty syllables;/ How you use them is up to you." The author explains this form of poetry and its two most important rules: the syllable count of 1/1/2/3/5/8 -- the first six digits from the Fibonacci sequence -- and "all rules can be broken. The goal is to WRITE." Post your own "fibbery" to Pincus' blog, and comment on the "fibs" of others.
