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.

(291)  My Tears Svelte

I want you to understand me.

Need I say more about my wants.

Somebody loves you more than you!

To imagine how deep our love…

Love you when you’re not mindful with

Me?  I will be your first and last

Things you surrender on impasse.

My assignments IOU task.

I congeal such oath with a fist!

I can heal myself when you wish.

I confuse you upon myself

Condensing all my tears shape svelte.

I want you to deform splendor.

Complicated torment, mentor.

Body deformation encore.

Corpus swervers decade in more

To love our first sun and last moon,

To labor in the loud now soon!
