Question: Is "Open Form" now the recognized term for what we used to call "Free Verse"!?
by TD Euwaite

To have a full set of teeth again,
like back when I could
bite a #2 Ticonderoga in half,

Unspent paper was the wasted,
loose leaf, ream sized binders full,
Chewed to pulp for spitwads,

Receptacles for every kind of refuse,
Catch basins, trash bins, pencil-filing traps,
Consumables, with no permanence of ink,

The arithmetical brilliance
of Geometry homework
folded into an airplane!.

PP: Do you know why I pulled you over, Mr!. Euwaite!?
T: No, Sir, Officer!.
PP: I’ve pulled you over for unsafe line lengths!. Although the Tercet does allow for no set meter and/or rhyme, you should at least make some effort to add music to your phrases!.
T: Huh!?
PP: Because you normally rhyme like Mother Goose, I’m letting you off with a warning!.
T: Thank you, Officer!.
