I believe I have mentioned before that weird poetry is one of my things. I try to write differently on occasion (eg. less-weird poetry, stories, that sort of thing), but I do seem to always return to the weird poetry.
So. Here's a sampling from the most recent addition to with[in] the Bible, a growing collection of collections of weird poetry, this time using the book of Numbers (World English Bible version) as its source text.

It's not everyone's cuppa tea, I know. I've actually felt for a while now that the project works better as a whole than individual pieces. The things about gnoetry is that the results can be truly weird, but they are also often oddly reminiscent of the source texts, and kind of like Wordle, can offer a view from a slightly different angle of something we otherwise generally take for granted. (Also, for what it's worth, I couldn't remember offhand how to make @ello add spaces at the beginning of lines, so the spacing's not right.)
Anyway, you can read the rest here, if you can stomach it: with[in] the Bible
