So this is the first time in a while that I've finished a poem and immediately wanted to delete it, but every time I've ever done that I've regretted it so I'm uploading it instead.
I've just been missing fixed forms, so I was browsing
to find new forms to try my hand at. This one is a triolet. Fun to write, but maybe a bit limiting for this subject, which I think I have a lot more to say about. So expect more Gettysburg poetry from me, at some point, if I can figure out what I'm trying to say about it. I live near there, and I just find it so odd how peaceful it is, considering...
Anyway, thoughts appreciated. Edit:
I've tweaked it a bit and now I actually quite like it. Enough in fact to be entering it into the
Fixed Form contest.
