Days Before Birthday The Wrighter Posts Poetry Dedicated to Jackson’s Vocal Expressions
The Wrighter has been posting nuler poetry influenced by Michael Jackson throughout the month of August from the book titled “50.”
Nuler (noo.LEHR) is 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.
The book “50” is an entire volume of poetry dedicated to and influenced by Jackson’s life and music and was written in the months following Jackson’s death (June 2009). In that same year, Wright’s goal was to publish the volume before Jackson’s birthday, August 29th.
Wright is a Southern California native with a BA in Communications from California State University, Fullerton. She has written several books including “Raise the Red Teddy: A Single Mother’s Guide to Dating;” “The Hodaoa-Anibo Dictionary;” and co-authored “A Crime And A Simplification of Something Sublime.”
Wright has created several art series as well, including “Fractured;”
Wright’s book, “50” is available on Amazon.com
