Free verse through form – a great article by Sam Peralta introduces this idea at One Stop Poetry for Form Monday.
After reading the article I was tempted to post this, which was going to become a Terza Rima but just refused to fit! The nearest I got to rhyme scheme was some iffy sight rhymes. I doubt it will stay as it is, but this is what it is for now…
The line is clear, like ice in gin
no hiss, click, interference
to obscure what I hear in
Tired beyond tired.
Weary beyond tears.
you can’t hide from me.
The fatigue, the ragged
need for sleep stalks you
from day to unyielding Afghan day.
