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.

(267)  Lost Circuit from Melancholy

Marsupial innate primate.

Imitate not originate.

Condensation satisfaction.

Organs and machine interact

Sundown with pancreatitis.

Must you aqueduct my kidney?

Your whip tail pleather culpable.

Lost circuit transformidable

On dialysis to release

Toxins prevent the normalcy

Of to be rather than be seen.

A causal of the ruptured spleen.

Cyborg engineering spare parts.

Melancholy spares the bleeding,

Repeating heart – artificial?

Superficial? A miracle!
