Sevenling (conscience) – 13 June 2019

Sevenling (conscience)

conscience
commands a personal sense of right,
moral conviction, an obligation to goodness

weaponized
it becomes self-righteous ego tripping,
a means to overpower, control, cast judgment

for god’s sake, it was just a cake

(Pride 2019


The elements of the Sevenling are:
1. a heptastich, a poem in 7 lines made up of 2 tercets followed by a single line. metered at the discretion of the poet.
2. unrhymed.
4. composed with 3 complimentary images in the first tercet and 3 parallel images in the second tercet. The end line is a juxtaposed summary of the 2 parallels, a sort of “punchline”.
5. the poem should be titled “Sevenling: (first few words of poem).
