A Cryptich is a three lined poem. Each line contains one and only one word. Therefore the Cryptich contains a total of three words. Each word should be unrelated, or at least a third or fourth cousin removed from each other. These poems seemingly are chaotic, random and/or blind. But somehow, like a good riddle or puzzle, rhyme and reason, solutions and resolutions appear in this cryptic 3 word puzzling poem. That said, the three words may be just 3 random words. The poet does not reveal his/her intention to the reader. The answers form from within he/she who reads the Cryptich.
Plastic/ Vulgarity / Chlorophyll
Ambrosia/ Elevator / Pomegranate
