    Do incomplete titles of the poems really work that way?

    I wrote a very concise poem yesterday. And spontaneously gave it an incomplete title. I just posted it yesterday, so it's too early for me to say anything. But does it really work that way, even if not always?

    I am not sure what you mean by "incomplete title "
    Could you explain a bit more?

    Title as incomplete phrase. For example for the split personality I wrote only " The Split " as title for my poem.

    I think that works because it gives the reader more room to interpret rather than being told straight out what the subject is.

    You can give your poem any title you want. It can be one word, or a phrase. A title should make your reader curious, wanting to read more, but it should by no means explain what will be in the poem, that would be a shame.

    By the way, I moved your question here, in Nuts&Bolts. It's a better place for it.

    Is it incomplete?

    The word was incomplete, I wanted readers to complete it with their interpretation. I couldn't get the response timely, so I got confused, if I did the right thing.

    If it's complete for you, it's complete for the rest of us...
