Inverse is a dictionary-based abecedarium. I've always been interested in how words contain their opposites.

This was achieved through heavy use of Microsoft Word, Excel, Babblefish, Dictionary.com and various sorting functions.

Parts of Inverse were published at Fascicle and No Tell Motel, and in Take Out. Five sections of Inverse can be seen here:
