No E

Lipogram: a composition in which the writer systematically omits a certain letter or letters of the alphabet.

Pick your favorite form, or even free verse, and write a lipogram. Or take a poem you have already written and adapt it.

This sounds easy, I’ll just leave out ‘x’, but no my friends I add a further restriction:
The letter(s) you leave out must be chosen from the following list: asdfertc,bnio, or m.

Here is a novel written entirely without the use of the letter ‘e’ for inspiration: Gadsby
