My Example poem
You Can Call Me, Darling (Cinquain Chain)
come to know each
other and shared a meal
or drink, a wink, or even more
even on the cheek,
or put each other down
in fun with social repartee
well then …
you might call me
darling and I’d not flinch.
It’s a sweet affectation, beats
works, and implies
perhaps you know me not
yet by name and darling implies
is your darling, even those I know
are rude and lacking very much
me and call me
darling has it’s merits.
Do you want to call me darling?
