Whenever I hear of merging poetry and prose, I think

*the person thinks what they've suggested has never been tried before
*they would deem to make the prose overly wordy
*they would deem to make the poetry overly dull

So, you usually end up with either purple prose or blank verse, sans the meter.

Has this ever been made into a thing that does not deserve a blade to its neck? Prose is not just this entire entry, in which I speak as if I were speaking to a neighbor; it's much more. Poetry is not just/ the lingual undertaking / in which I must / prove I am acidicly lactating.

I suppose the problem is keeping the essence of the base, in that one should not try to perfectly fuse, 50 by 50, the two into one thing. They already share the core of it, the story telling, but in their own styles which branch from the same thing in the first place.

But this is the question forum and I'll pose if anyone's ever seen a good example of such a bastard (usually in the case of prose that has been made into prosetry; I've already seen some lovely prosaic poetry that captures poetry well enough) project. If so, I'll take some notes.
