poetic device: Wordplay

Wordplay in poetry just means playing with language. It might mean inventing new words, using punctuation in unusual ways, or replacing letters with numbers. It might mean writing sentences backward, overusing alliterations, or including tons of puns.

I love wordplay in poetry, so I have written many, many poems that use some form of wordplay, including all of these.
