Miz Quickly 6: Although…
“List Poem:  Wait a minute, though. While a list poem has an inheirent form, it tends to be a tad…listy. Let’s add an element (hee). Let’s add ALTHOUGH. Your list can be words or phrases or whole paragraph-stanzas, and can be as long as you like. But you want some sense of resolution, even if it can’t be grasped without taking a little time.

I desire
bright lights
loud music
rum and coke
strappy shoes
glittered eyes
soft kiss
although… that was
a lifetime ago and now
comfy couch
warm throw
ginger ale
good light
lovely read
dog warming my feet
the wiffle of your breathing
as you watch TV
us together
doing our thing.
