Toward Oulipo

Michelle Taransky’s recent work appears in DIAGRAM, canwehaveourballback?, La Petite Zine and at Dan Waber’s altered books project. Taransky teaches poetry to public school students across the Midwest.

Notes: Each of the 6 poems in the series is a “univocal lipogram.” Each poem exercises one vowel only (A, E, I, O, U or Y). The venture is that narrative may emerge from even the most rigid constraint.
