Just spotted this thread. I had no idea of the things that go on here. I just tried to answer a simple question then I hit "show all" and found a cacophony of contributions. Amazing how y'all get around this board!

I'd tread carefully, bel. "Tube trip" sounds positively illicit to me. I do, however, concede that some of the world's best poems, music and paintings have been produced by people on "tube trips".

I've heard it called a mirror-ball before, or a disco-ball too

Like the Japanese haikus which evoke such wonderful images for the imagination and the mind to dream on

This is "Words from Medicine"? Rx One cup of Leaves of Grass
Well chewed and ruminated

I believe the form of poetry you are describing is not free verse, but prose verse (yeah, a contradiction in terms I know). And if you take out all the line breaks they can make rather good paragraphs, but not all paragraphs can be turned into prose verse.
