Typescenes is a collection of prose poems, meaning poems that are presented in paragraph form, without linebreaks to denote meter. But Typescenes certainly has a meter; it is a rhythmic, danceable book with a recognizable scansion. Poet Steven Moller has broken down the book’s meter, illustrating it with “wands and cups.” We present the meter of several of the poems, without the actual text, here.
Steven Thomas Moller is a poet and recent St. Francis College MFA graduate. During his graduate program, he learned and embraced the metrical practices taught under the care and guidance of Annie Finch. He is currently working on his first collection of poetry. Steven is from Brooklyn, New York.
