Today’s poetry form over at the dVerse Poets Pub, is the dizain.

You’re truly not the guy you used to be

And I’m not the girl I was yesterday.

But what do you see when you look at me?

Saggy, wrinkled skin? Thinning hair of gray?

You don’t have time to look at me these days β€”

All your drinking and sneaking and lying!

In your sleep it’s her name you’ve been sighing.

So pack up your stuff and hit the road, Earl!

Loser, please: it’s too late to start crying.

Have a nice life, you and that skanky girl!

  1. Anybody named Earl is suspect. Wow, a rollicking in-the-moment stream-of-consciousness gem.You sublimated the form to interesting content.
