Note: This is what happens when you pull words only from context, and learn from books without teachers… you write a pair of poems in which triolet rhymes with bet, rather than hay. Oh well, live and learn, maybe I’ll try to rework these sometime, maybe not.

I. Written
You try to write a Triolet
in a modern coffee shop. You do
not dare to rhyme. They will not let
you try to write a Triolet.
They see tradition as threat,
would ridicule if they but knew
you try to write a Triolet.
In a modern coffee shop, you do.

II. Shared

Card carrying connoisseurs contend
the triolet trespasses thought,
relays wrong word, wrong repetend.
Card carrying connoisseurs contend
all ears eschew each end-stopped end.
Regarding rhymed repeating rot,
card carrying connoisseurs contend
the triolet trespasses thought.
