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.

(289)  Unfamiliar Territory

It can be a simple note

To a love letter or a song.

Pulsating beyond two fingers

Percussive volume and speedsters.

Your heart is irreplaceable!

Your writhing flesh intangible.

Climb on me scandalous tendrils!

Id astorgy ramps mandible

In a sink drains abluvion.

I race to your convolution!

Wed bruises will exfoliate

Eventually to a new fate

Found in a seductive lover

Of family value smother,

In daily joy to cryptic things.

What intense body aches will cling!

You can be my dominator.

I will be your serpent coiler.

Togetherness rings my main squeeze!

Your indivisible striptease.
