It’s National Poetry Month…and I, Uhh, Invented My Own ‘Poetic Form’

Nerd-a-riffic, yes.

As in: it’s now “registered” as a new literary artistic form, the whole bit.

However, with ‘free verse’ being the norm these days rather than the exception,

it seems the most radical thing a poet can do is conform to a rigid structure.

I created one with regard to meter, stanza—the title, even.

The first piece I wrote within this form is published here:

The Battered Suitcase: April, 2009

And I expound upon the form in an interview here:

Tongue/Cheek?

Fiercely wriggled, please.&.thanks
