Written for dVerse Poets Pub – “Septets for dVerse’s 7th Anniversary” (posted by Frank)
In honor of this anniversary the theme for Meeting the Bar is any seven line poem or, if one is feeling ambitious, a poem whose stanzas each contain seven lines.
Your poem does not have to be a Chaucerian stanza. It does not have to rhyme. It doesn’t have to be about anything in particular. It just has to contain seven lines or have stanzas of seven lines each.
The dVerse bar is welcoming you
to pull up a stool, take a load off.
Our bartenders will fix you a drink or two,
we’re informal, cozier than the Waldorf.
Select a cocktail, any one, (except a Molotov).
If you are feeling quite courageous,
step up to the mic, and read some pages.
