A poem written in Murisopsis’ new nonce poetic form: “Dizzy”
mostly it my lines of thought out spinning sharp hook reeling in life in a bottle yanked it flew back just about knock me out now I'm laid out flat stupidly grinning hearing outboard motor churn full throttle crew staring ask what you smiling about I seen the flow's impending beginning it metaphysical like Aristotle this catch the real deal not thick river trout streaming home through oceans my fog thinning
‘Dizzy’ nonce form
This is a poetic form of ten lines with ten syllables per line with a rhyme scheme of: a/b/c/a/b/c/a/b/c/a. Words of motion must be included in the poem.
This nonce form was created by Murisopsis.
Murisopsis’ Scavenger Hunt for National Poetry Month
This poem was written for Muri’s poetry scavenger hunt.
This year, she has selected some nonce forms for us to experiment with.
Nonce forms are essentially poetic forms created by poets for one-time use…. When enough people use a nonce form it becomes recognized as a received form…-Murisopsis

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
