Like all unit-word palindrome poems, it can be read both backwards and forwards. The poem is filled with references to cryptocurrency concepts, including decentralized finance, marketplaces, lingo ("degen," "hodl," "pancakeswap," "flippening," "drop" etc.) specific to the space, in order to appeal to the readership of RedLion News, which concentrates on NFT and crypto news articles.

Sample Work - Odd Haiku:

Bracelet of Words
haiku entitled Bracelet of Words

The above poem is an NFT and is available here. To create the NFT, I took the keywords from three separate twitter poetry prompts on the day of composition and incorporated them into a haiku. I then overlaid the haiku on top of a zoomed-in section of CC0 (Creative-Commons) licensed art by Cocoparisienne which is available here. I then played with the colors, outlines, and placement of some of the letters of the text in order to convey additional meaning.

This poem is also visible in this online gallery.

Who am I ?

I like writing 0dd things.

My name is George Pestana and I am a poet who goes by the name OddWritings. I have over 25 years of software development experience and only started to disseminate my poetry in 2020, via both self-published collections and NFTs.

Besides my own collections, I have also been published in SkywayJournal (author misattributed - 2021 - February), Open Skies Quarterly (Volume 4), Writes of the Round Table (ed. Lucie Sargeant), and Quintessence (Soul Poet Society).

I have also been included in various metaverse online gallery collaborations, such as the CryptoPoetry Gallery (created by the CryptoPoetry discord group, in which I am active) and the first issue of the Hybrid Art Journal (as a guest contributor for the Pages of the Soul project). I have a series of my own art galleries on oncyber.io and I will soon also be creating some on spatial.io.

I am one of the poets listed on CryptoPoetry.io and on InkyNfts.com, as well as the LIT Artist page which is not restricted to poets.

I have been interviewed (among others) on the Metaverse Post. I am also the featured poet in Issue 48 of The Tickle.

I currently sell NFTs on OpenSea

I currently sell NFTs on Valuables

I currently sell NFTs on Rarible

I will soon sell NFTs on Foundation

I will soon sell NFTs on Coinbase NFT

I also plan to periodically give away NFTs from my account on App.Bio
