Experimental Poetry Form: Five, Five, Five

This experimental poetry form is called five, five, five.  It consists of one stanza of five lines.  Each line has five words.  Each word has five letters.  Here is an example poem:

After night began, teeth awoke –
sharp teeth, clear above trees.
Death fills black empty skies.
Below panic.  Below forms dread.
Teeth gleam after night began.
