Nuler (noo.LEHR): A dramatic form of contemporary poetry involving a reversal of traditional structure wherein a rhymed or unrhymed title is an integral component of the overall poetic piece and the title of the poem contains the greatest quantity of content and is strictly comprised of no more than one, usually quite lengthy sentence, which is starkly contrasted by the subsequent poem which is composed of eight words or less. The extreme length of the title characterizes the form and the movement of the nuler poem along with its linked-linear nature, which forces its overt length and weight upon the substantially shorter, ostensibly lighter poem beneath it. The poem component of the nuler, however, with brevity, density and substantiality resists disintegration or diminution through succinct core content and striking contrast to its formidable title with which the poem simultaneously and often ironically compliments by sagacious ignition of language and exposure of what lies beneath the surface value of words.
Also means to collapse in Hodaoa-Anibo.
