Modern taste runs to short poems—and these verses are precisely that. Over fifty verses, ranging from a six-line reduction of Christopher Marlowe’s "Dr. Faustus" to a one-word, slant-rhyme, leonine line in iambic dimeter. Most start with another poem—either a single line or the entire work—then respond to it, confute it, subvert it, pun on it, or otherwise simply have fun with it. Enjoy!
