Compression

One chapter of a life-long adventure
Becomes twenty-five words of a poem

One essay of a family disaster
Becomes twenty-five words of a poem

Ten hours of writing mania
Becomes ten lines of a poem

Twelve chapters of a memoir
Becomes twelve stanzas of a poem

A thousand word description of betrayal
Becomes twenty-five words of a poem

Twenty-five words of a poem
Becomes seventeen syllables of a haiku
