Oulipost 22–Inventory: Enchilada Trees

For this poem, I am going to have to send you over to Prezi to view it — apparently I can’t embed directly on a WordPress-hosted blog.

Here’s the link: Enchilada Trees

Pick the fruit to build your own sentences.


Fernau, Karen, ‘Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Enchiladas, the New Taco’, The Arizona Republic, 22 April 2014, Online edition <http://www.azcentral.com/story/life/food/2014/04/22/enchilada-gadzooks-recipe/8011553/&gt; [accessed 23 April 2014]


Inventory is a method of analysis and classification that consists of isolating and listing the vocabulary of a pre-existing work according to parts of speech. Choose a newspaper article or passage from a newspaper article and “inventory” the nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, articles, etc. Bonus points for creative presentation of your final lists.


I admit to being boggled by this one.  I went for creative presentation.  If I were a programmer, I might be able to do something where you could pick words from a drop down list to build your own sentences.  Or a flip book.  Something with interchangeable word for the parts of speech.  But that sort of idea would take me a week instead of a day.  So I went with a Prezi.
