Four/One: The Birth of A New Poetic Form

It's mine! It's mine! A form so Fine: Four rhymes in a single line.


If I were trim and slim, she'd not look at him... off to the gym!


Glimmer. Let it simmer. Lights grow dimmer. I drive a Bimmer.


Give it a try, let your mind fly, laugh or cry. It only matters Why.

  2. No, I don't drive a Bimmer, or Beemer if you prefer, it just fit the line's rhymes. (It's actually the tale of a guy in a singles' bar at closing time)

  9. Sheer nonsense you see, Kathe? I disagree wholeheartedly!

  11. This might catch on or cause a yawn and be gone by dawn.
