The World’s Shortest Poem
by Jamison Koehler on February 15, 2011
If Ernest Hemingway can write an entire short story in six words (“For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn”), the world’s shortest poem must have even fewer words. In honor of my mother’s 86th birthday today, I nominate something she wrote many years ago. Entitled “Marriage,” it consists of four words: “I always. You never.” I’m still working on the world’s shortest blog entry ever. I’ll let you know when it’s done.
