Poem. Or not. A quadrille for dVerse.

I’m not writing you a poem.

Don’t even ask me to.

I’m not scheming a
rhyme pattern,
and I’m not
rhythming
tonight,

not scanning, not
alliterating, and
definitely
not doing that
enjambment thing

that you go on about.

 

 

Victoria at dVerse is asking us to quadrille a poem poem tonight. I’m not.

  1. LOL – love the approach, the mocking parody and tone, which in itself, becomes the poem – kind of “this is not a love story” …. and here I was, thinking along the same fashionable lines and ideas – well done! 😀

    I am DE-lighted by this! Laughing out loud, and loving every line. The voice in this is just wonderful. I love this tiny rebel poem (I hate to tell her, but she’s a poem, despite her best efforts to the contrary. It’s okay. She can be a contrary poem. Often, they’re the best ones.)
