A Pantoun repeats certain lines in successive stanzas: 1st stanza-ABCD 2nd stanza-BEDF so the second and fourth lines in the first stanza become the first and third in the second, and so forth. 3rd-EGFH 4th-GIHJ or GAHC. Confusing but there it is.

I couldn't see what the big deal was.

I was worried when you didn't show up.

It was more like a Taco burger from Mars.

I called everyone who might have known.

I was worried when you didn't show up.

Where were you last night?

I called everyone who might have known.

You don't remember?

Where were you last night?

Furtively bleeding outside a motel door-way

You don't remember?

Cars careening off blind balusters

Furtively bleeding outside a motel door-way

Are you in any kind of trouble?

Cars careening off blind balusters

Bumping and honking the horns
