Excellent! I tried a sonnet by the way! Take a look when you have the time! I'm a bit confused with what is the stupidest thing ever... what is a syllable...f.e. child, one syllable or two syllables? where, one syllable or two syllables? The former has one vowel yet it sounds kinda like two and the latter sounds as one syllable but there are two vowels! Care to enlighten me? I await your suggestion! 🎈

I've got it my friend! I searched high and low eastwards and westwards, hither and thither and I finally found a form that will probably f@#$k with your brain but it's glorious and it will not bore you. A difficult form for a poet with your mad skills! So I propose that you try your hand with....drum roll...a palindrome poem! Waiting for a suggestion from you!

Info below:

Also search for Demetri Martin and read his work to get an idea!
Good Luck 🎈

Hey Devon! Thank you! The truth is I kinda like my sea shanty! I'm happy with it! I've been looking for a challenging form for you. Meanwhile since you did a sonnet I'll try one as well! And as soon as I find something that will intriguing enough for your mad skills and brilliant mind I'll toss in a suggestion!
Thanks a lot!🎈
Mae

Hi Dev and Don
I do appreciate your posts.
I may have left the back-door open in this poem.
The shape of some light, on a surface through window glass, can be fancifully described as such.
And Dev pardon my use of "To clarify" that upon retrospect came across as a rebuff - far from it. It was a genuine request to enquire.

The legs and her legs.

Cheers lads.
Tommy

Hey Devon thanks for enlightening me and ushering me to try my hand in different styles! As for traditional forms, I don't believe you can't pull them off I believe they are not a challenge for you. I ve seen your work and I believe you're the kind of writer who will break if born already the norms! Keet at it!
Thank you 🎈
Mae

Thanks Jason. Yeah, that sorta came out of no-where. I felt like the FNG getting "employee of the month", so to speak - a bit embarrassed, humbled, and wondering "why me, why now."

Hey Devon... Congrats on poem of the week. Rhythmically, reminds me of old school beat poetry. "She had a shit day borne on a twitching crease of lip" is my favorite line. Right on, man... awesome work!

Devon, welcome to WOL. Interesting bio picture. Good thing the face seems full of humour! Can't figure out 'old geezer' bit though.

I'll try to find some time to check out your work. Great piece upfront.

Hey Devon! I've been browsing your work and really enjoy what I've read so far. "She Calls It Sorrow" is a great story and reminds me of some of the people I've crossed paths with in life. It would sound great spoken slam-style with jazz in the background. Looking forward to reading more from you. Take care --- J. Zane
