Martin Hicks on a Triolet Roll


Hostel
by Martin Hicks

Down by dock hostel times are sleazy
     With burly boy and teddy,
Dog on hot doorstep snoozes wheezy.
Down by dock hostel times are sleazy
Where bully makes bad drubbing easy
     While blondy waits for steady.
Down by dock hostile times are sleazy
     With burly boy and teddy.

Trioletophobia by Peter Blossom

I dread to meet a triolet,
The repetitions spook me.

Let OCDs rebuke me.
I dread to meet  a triolet,
The repetitions spook me.

-Peter Blossom
