Journal 48
A Collection of New Alliterative Verse
by ArchDuke Kenneth Khanh Du

“My reflection upon the current climate which send heat waves simmering throughout time.”

New Alliterative Verse has five set parameters defined by me:
1. A couplet line poem with 20 lines or less
2. Each line contained no more than eight syllables
3. Each line has alliteration of either consonant or vowel
4. The alliteration must be tied to the next line (hence couplet)
5. Rhymed or unrhymed

Alliterative Verse as a form was adopted by me from the skalds of Norway. Skalds were the Viking's poet-musicians and their poetic form began somewhere in the 9th Century. The original form(s) with many however remain unstructured and often confusing /or ambiguous.

(152)  The After-Dinner Mixer

Amidst cromulent living room,

We wiggle to tripsy house boom.

I am pouring myself tonight,

Because the feeling is just right.

Myself and my shadow indak.

Ethereal ambience mach the shack

Moating into diapason.

There she appears one true kalon!

Her eyes penetrate like hot coal!

Her hairs float like serpentine polls!

Her lips internest matter.

Her hips duende splatter.

I small talk the bore, glance groovin.

Her gossips rowdy the kitchen

For a slice of pie to our song,

For a toast moving us headstrong.

It’s the right choice.

Destinesia has voice.
