Quatrain.Fish publishes very short poetry of four lines or less. Here’s their Editor’s Note:
I know for myself, when I set to write a short poem, I tend to end up with about six lines. Those of course, won’t be welcome here at Quatrain.Fish. Most poetry of four lines or less (fewer, if you insist) isn’t a poem at all, but part of a poem or an ill-formed thought. Yet if, as Poe claimed, long poems aren’t poems at all, then perhaps the most poetical of poems is the shortest of poems.
True or not, a perfectly crafted, tiny poem is like a sharp knife or a sex-laden wink, an empty elevator shaft or the perfect vista bursting through fog: perfectly captured images and emotions that can creep into our lives and never leave. We hope Quatrain.Fish publishes one or two or three or thirty that can be that for you.
A piece of mine was just accepted for publication. I look forward to sharing it soon.
In the meantime, check out Quatrain.Fish. They are permanently closing to new submissions in December, so get your short work to them soon.
