ode to a form

yes, it


some skill

to write a

real quadrille;

musical, like

a trill, a thrill

to take up

your best quill

let creative

juices spill;

count each


you will

keep writing

until the

quota of

cuarenta y cuatro

you fill…

then chill.


Chilling at the poets’ pub today, writing quadrilles on the word “spill”.

    I like it so much! Good to remember that the words first of all means a dance.
