Oulipost #15: Prisoner's Constraint

I am a prisoner. I cannot use letters with ascenders or descenders due to space limitations. One article, the Reuters / New Dehli "Opposition motivated by hatred, says Sonia," from today's Gulf Times on my cell floor. You care.


rare vision

sonia comes on

an increase          a win

seen in a no-nonsense sari

me          i ensure we are news

now we are more          a wave

a son          a senior          so

we are in a race          us          open

some minimise a vision          i answer

in case          in a name


As usual, Douglas J. Luman's ouliposcripts helped narrow the results in the blink of an eye.
