Dorsimbra

Created by Eve Braden, Frieda Dorris and Robert Simonton, the Dorsimbra
is a poem of 12 lines, consisting of
(1) a quatrain of iambic pentameter rhyming abab
(2) a quatrain of “short and snappy” free verse, and
(3) a quatrain of blank verse (unrhymed iambic pentameter).
The final (12th) line is the same as the first line ( a refrain).
The form’s creators suggest the use of enjambment, interlaced rhymes, 
and near-rhymes to bind the three stanzas/

Safe Fax
Today’s environment demands safe fax.
If you fax to yourself you won’t go blind.
A cover used will not let you relax.
If you fax too fast, most consorts won’t mind.

If you know them then everything’s okay.
