Graphitober: 4. Pearl

Here is another compact poetry form I really like called the tricube for pearl. Three is magic. A bunch of threes is even more magic.

I really wanted to find a way to use the word nucleate in there because I’ve been trying to learn somethings about clouds. I remembered about nucleation sites, took that idea, and tried to run with it.

Pearls start with a tiny source of irritation and build around it with their secretions. I imagined that irritation to be the kernel of my writing life, or at least just an aspect of it. We all have many sides after all.
