Poet's note:

This is an overview of the six-word couplets that I wrote in August 2018.  I decided to write at least 6 of these poems a month starting with June.  I also listed each of them as separate poems, which allows me to list more information concerning each and create links to their stories in the news.  So if you want to read more information about one or more of the six-word couplets below, look for the individual poems listed immediately before this review.

I've been intrigued by the "six-word story," which has gained popularity, including the 2006 Six-Word Memoirs® project.  What about a six-word couplet?  

Lol. . . Even my simple cover image above has six words!

I like all of them - I can see them fitting as a cohesive poem, (my favorite has to be the Paris urinals!)
