Tortuous Tritina


Tortuous Tritina poetry form
Painful to pen, Ponsot‘s gem, the
Life you inadvertently sucked out of me

Odious oddball once only you’ll be for me
Enjambment moves you forward truly, the
Fact is, I shall not mourn you; I do not warm to your form

This restrained rant a descant to the
Tritina tickles the fancy in me
Conquered, set free, fly away, flee, formidable form

The tricky Tritina, not a favoured form for me
