feverishly writing. Puts down her pencil, and
the thoughts that made it to paper. But more so,
the emptied back of her mind now seems. Blank
really, so she fixates on how erasure smudges

Poem within reads:
The Waltmarie, created by Candace Kubinec, is a 10-line form of any subject. The even-numbered lines are 2 syllables, and must form their own poem when read separately. The odd-numbered lines are longer, with no syllable count restrictions.
Oh this is good–and I may want to try the form, as I’m not familiar with it, thanks!
Thank you, Zelda! This form was such a humbling surprise, named for Walt and me. It is fun, and super challenging. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Truly, it’s a lovely honor for you both! And I’ll let you know if I manage the form 🙂
Really excellent. Love the form, also.
Thank you, Misk! (And I love the form, too!)
