Thisaway, or: Thataway

‘No way. Way!’, a d’Verse Quadrille

wayless, makes his
way up dark
areaway - to
stowaway on a

Highwayman in jet
cutaway strolling past purplish
twayblades, reading stolen
waybill, notes blond

Hereaway’s no place for young
tearaways, he smiles. Well,
leastways we’re both of

The above poem is my take on d’Verse’s Quadrille challenge #120.

The quadrille is simply a poem of 44 words (excluding the title), and it can take any form. This week’s challenge was to use the word “way” in a quadrille.

  1. I like this jolly acid-trip feel, and yes wonderfully wild as usual wordplay. Especially with the photo… What inspired it, besides the challenge?

    1. Thanks, Lia 😀

      Other than the challenge, nothing inspired this – I went through words that include ‘way’, and worked with what I had. With poetic exercises like this, I let the words guide my fingers across the keyboard.
