tiny poetry: macropoetics is the brainchild of Lyse Lasaro, who, upon seeing Misty Lynn's image macros of various T.S. Eliot poems, which she transposed into text bubbles and edited in ninety-nine cent iPhone apps, asked her to make a Facebook group in which similar, poetic and yes, memetic original content could be shared across thousands of screens with a quick click. In August of 2015, tiny poetry was born. Today, the group has nearly 3,000 members creating hundreds of image macros (the internet term for edited found images or personal photographs with text over them) each month. In order to marry the personal with the aesthetic, we created tiny poetry: macropoetics, the web iteration.
