the Edge

the Edge
             is about having less
the Edge
             is a fickle hellcat
the Edge
             is in the house
the Edge
             is everywhere
the Edge
             is hi-ring
the Edge
             is there
the Edge
            is here
the Edge
             is now
the Edge
            is not
the Edge
            is

*******

D'Verse is all about list poetry today.

  13. I don't like being near that edge. I fear not finishing sentences. Eerie, spooky, effective poem!

  15. 'a hellcat' and a 'fickle' one at that -- one of the fun parts of this exercise has been seeing the choices people made from their lists.

  16. Great choice of progression, using to great effect a decreasing line length that speaks to the inevitability of existence in the final line.
