In the beginning, there was slime. And out of the slime evolved a more advanced life form. It developed a way to communicate. It gave things names. This sophisticate made noises that sounded similar, and poets were born! We’ve made it this far through perseverance. Through form. Ok, maybe not through form.
One legend of our ilk is Bea Quickly, a personal hero of mine. Conversely, I move Moe Slowly than she. So I welcome you to Moe Slowly’s Form Frenzy! I invite poets to attempt the poetic forms that will be presented here. Each Sunday I will list a calendar of poetic forms for the upcoming week. (You’ll know which forms will be highlighted and give you a chance to prepare something!)
Post your poems here as comments or link to your blogs for the work of the day. Either way, come over and play. It will be wild. It will be crazy. It’s a form frenzy. Even if we are full of crap (we don’t take ourselves too seriously!), please check us out!
