Smell the Roses

 

Love and desire: Aphrodite
    Fumes emitted from the human race
Breathe the scent of fragrances’ toxicity
    False rose petals; bottles, pretty as lace

False rose petals; bottles, pretty as lace
    All just a part of evolution?

  4. This is awesome. I think it is a specific poetry form…. What is it called?

    • Michellina Van Loder says:

      Thank you. Yes, it’s a Pantoum, which is french and has that line repetition thing going on with it. Here are some notes on the form (from my poetry class notes):
      “The pantoum is written in interlinked quatrains, usually rhyming a, b, a, b in which the second and forth lines in each stanza become the first and third lines of the next; in the last stanza, the form comes full circle as the hitherto unrepeated first and third lines of the first stanza are used, in reverse order, as the second and fourth lines.”
