SMS Poems

What is SMS Poetry?

Simply put: it is poetry that fits inside a text message; i.e. poetry that is less than 160 characters long. Text message poems cover the same themes as ordinary poetry like love, friendship, jokes, etc. but this time your poem fits inside a standard-size sms.

We have a selections of sms poetry below. Why not message your favourites to a friend or colleague.

TEXT MESSAGES by Andrew Wilson

"A text message poem finds one truthful moment
and describes it... It's a snapshot, a digital photograph
with words, written on a mobile phone, and published
instantly by being texted."

some not at all,
in case of viruses,
power surges,

We follow arrows
on the path
between doll's house rooms:
a Madame Toussauds
of the people we’d like to be.

sms poem

Made to drink whisky
in a suburban living room
my dad sings a Scottish folk song.
Strange words learnt by hearing.
Lost now. We can't carry a tune.


Text message poetry online can be good or it can be bad. Tthat's why I contacted UK poet Andrew Wilson to ask if I could put some of his words from his poetry book Text Messages here. And do you know what, "Mr Wilson he say yes" ;-)
