SONNETS FROM THE SINGLISH
poems by Joshua Ip
sonnets from the singlish is a collection of 44 poems on love, language and other
funny stuff, loosely translated from the english- based creole language collo-
quially spoken in singapore, widely known as singlish.
The poems are all sonnets, an archaic italian fourteen-line rhyming verse form
that went out of fashion about the same time as frilly pants. (this is primarily for
ease of formatting.) The views expressed in the poems are those of an imaginary
persona and are by no means to be associated with the author or publisher.
