This Wednesday’s Poetic Asides prompt was to write an inverted pyramid poem. The idea is intriguing. In it, the most important information is packed in at the top, and then dwindles down in the fashion of an inverted pyramid, the idea being based on a journalistic concept. The idea is that if an editor needs to cut an article for space, he can slice cleanly from the bottom. I immediately thought of a recipe. All you really need to know are the essential ingredients, and you can take it from there.
