On the compositional methods of Ada Palmer

“I think this sentence may need…. an introductory adverb.” Ada Palmer, June 13th 2018, Florence

Since all your sentences read
As if they were handcrafted from spun diamond
By superintelligent moonspiders,
It is no surprise
When your paragraphs weigh as much
As a young Pegasus prancing through the treetops
Just before it rains,
And are as good as the gold
Of sunset spreading across an open fjord
To lap lap lap at the looming strand
Where the wine dark sea
Meets the sky vault
Just as a rocket rises
With a sound like the delighted laughter
Of a thousand philosophers.
