A PHONETIC FORM

Written by: Brian Strand

Why 
do I 
            write 
                this way
did I
hear you
say?
           Why
            don't you
pen
in lines
             with
             commas,
apostrophes;
and rhymes
                iambs
                metres
                or
syllables
and stress
                 I suppose
                 to get
your close
attention
                 with my
                 sound 
patterns 
I guess
                 to
                read me
aloud
as poems
should 
                and once                 
                did   
to 
            attract
              a 
crowd
