Writing a Comic Book Poem – Photobooth

Photobooth is another short and simple Comic Book Poem. It was originally written for an exhibition of visual poetry during the Edinburgh Fringe at the Forest Cafe. The exhibition was called Quiet Forest and was hosted by the Spoken Word collective Inky Fingers. More information about my contribution to the exhibition can be found here.

Photobooth - Comic Book Poem
Photobooth deals with relationships and belonging. It was written to be short, sweet and to the point. When writing the text I had the visuals in the back of my mind. This Comic Book Poem is the perfect example of how words and images can go together and do not need to be separate. Having the visual style in my mind and some brief sketches in my notebook informed the simplicity in the words.
See the upcoming Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Photobooth blog post for more information on how the illustrations came about.

We entered the booth to be happy
But you ruined it with a bad joke
Now we cant be together anymore
and what am I supposed to do?
