Cloggy Colgyrnach

Twist the time in line with the form
and you’ve killed it before its born;
tried too hard to twist
and shove its true gist
into torn
little lists,

but you’ve made a spirit of it;
given it to a life that’s lit
from within a place
where you’ll see it race
its own wit
into space.

And now I’ve gone and flipped it end
over end, and the form starts  rend-
ing itself to piec-
es, tears at the creas-
es that tend
to release

the poetic equivalent
(I hope it’s not irrelevant)
of hanging upside down
with knees wrapped around
jungle-bent
gyms of sound.

Clogyrnach silliness.  I’ve taken some liberties with the form (I almost always do…).  Switched the rhymes of lines 5 and 6 in each stanza.

  1. Thank you for saying so. Still seems a bit awkward to me. Still trying to find what this form speaks about best. It’s fun though.
