EILEEN R. TABIOS PRESENTS THE MONOBON IN "CHAPTER ONE"


Eileen R. Tabios  officially release the MONOBON through her essay published in Marsh Hawk Press' "Chapter One" series that focuses on beginnings. You can see the essay at THIS LINK, but here's an excerpt:

"The monobon is very much a contemporary creature reflecting the zeitgeist. That is, the monobon is created in the Zoom age. I’ve noticed that during poetry readings on Zoom, Zoom attendees frequently type up a line they heard and liked on the Zoom event’s Chat screen. This emphasizes a favored line and I’ve observed some can stand alone as a monostich. Thus, I consider the monobon to reflect the nature of attention in the digital age."
