I Don’t Write Sonnets Anymore
I have a friend who is a published poet in Norway.
I showed her my work and she said I cannot claim to write sonnets.
I do not follow the established rules for sonnets laid down 400 years ago.
It's a new century and I'm taking sonnets into the Space Age I said.
Nuh-uh was her reaction.
No more sonnets.
I write fourteen line poems in iambic heptameter called Sonnitz! TM
For a small fee.
