I only went and finished with a form.
My 4 points is to a piece of formed poetry. But it is a form that is restricted in one way, but a meadow in another. Mr Darcy has written a real gem here.
I smiled when I read it and once I had read all the poems nominated tonight I immediately thought of this. I just love the last line in relation to the first. It is also a form that I haven't seen much of.
One that I am sure I have written myself by accident when writing a haiku or senryu.
Thanks for posting a quirky but clever piece. 4 points
Michael, your use of the syntuit form shines. It allows so much more freedom than the limitations of the haiku or senryu.
The image of your sanity hiding is a great departure. I can picture an anthropomorphic Sanity cowering behind barriers made of drums and tympani, all to no avail, waiting for the inevitable evisceration.
