[previous] [next] [gallary entrance]


This next one was written in a message during a conversation on flirting. It took only a few minutes to write. The format is iambic pentameter, but there is a difference from anything I'd done before: the lines are not "end stopped". That is, the end of the line is not the end of the sentence or complete phrase of some kind.

The first stanza is masterful. The others are disappointing in comparison. This is definitely one to revisit once I'm more skilled.
