Poem A Day: Not Quite a Nonet

I

confess

that I have

no idea

how to write nonets.

Oh wait, you mean to say

that I was to start out with

nine syllables in the first line

and end up with just one? Oops – backwards!

.

So let me try again – hey, why not?

This is poetry month, you know,

the perfect time to practice

new modes of expression.

So start with nine and

work backwards ‘til

I end up

with just

one?
