A lipogram (LIP-uh-gram) is a piece of writing that omits a certain letter or letters.
For more information on lipograms (and more), here’s an interesting site: http://phrontistery.info/lipogram.html
I recently took up the challenge of writing my own “univocalic” lipogram – a poem that contains only one of the five vowels (a-e-i-o-u). Here’s what I came up with . . .
His gin kisses fill my dim night
thick with chill mists, ill
bringing first his fights, his right
his fists – killing highs
this silly pill insists it fills
this night finds its trick
his will, my will dying
finding kissing sighs, bliss
thick with chill mists, stripping
birds in flight.
