Experimental Poetry Form: V

Today’s experimental poetry form is called V.  It is based on layout on the page.  The form consists of twenty one words in the shape of a V.  It looks as follows:

 

*                                       *

  *                                   *

    *                               *

      *                           *

            *               *

              *           *

                *       *

                  *   *

                    *

The form is read by going down the left side and then up the right side.  Here is an example poem written in the form:
